Carl was born and raised on Crab Point in Morehead City on October 23, 1943, to the late Winfield and Edna Buck. He spent his early years working alongside his father in the commercial fishing business until he joined the United States Navy. After honorably serving in the military, he had a successful career doing heating and air before 20 years with civil service. He retired from NADEP Cherry Point in 2003 after numerous years of faithful service. If you knew Carl, then you had probably had a glimpse of his 1986 Buick Grand National which he was proud to own.
He is survived by his daughter, Carla Daley of Vanceboro, NC; son, Kevin Workman of South Jordan, UT; step-daughters, Davina Lopez, Joy Lawrence and Bertha Wade; step-son, Ronnie Thomas; sisters, Kay Linden and Ann Hurst, both of Ohio; brothers, Steve Buck of Morehead City and Lawrence “Buddy” Buck and wife Linda of Maryland; 8 grandchildren; and 7 great-grandchildren.
