Obituary

Buck A. Adrian, age 70, of Spring Hill, KS-formerly of Olathe, KS-passed away on June 7, 2019. He was born on September 24, 1948 to George Buck and Mary L. Robinson-Adrian in Austin, Texas. He was a true Texan through and through and loved the Dallas Cowboys and The University of Texas-any Texas team for that matter.

After his family moved several times, they settled in Overland Park, KS when Buck was two years old. He was a member of the Boy Scouts as a child and told many stories about going to Camp Nash in the summers. Buck graduated from Shawnee Mission West High School in 1968. After high school, he went to Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, KS and graduated in 1972 with a Construction-Science Degree. He was so proud of his alma mater and got a tattoo of ‘Gus the Gorilla’, their mascot. He worked for Burns & McDonnell Engineering as a Senior Cost Estimator after college for 38 years before retiring on his 62nd birthday in 2010. It was at Burns & McDonnell that he met the love of his life, Pam and knew from first sight that he wanted to marry her.

He is survived by his wife Pamela Warner-Adrian. They were married May 17, 1980 in Overland Park, KS by the Reverend Ira DeSpain who also officiated their renewal vows in 1990. He and Pam recently celebrated their 39th anniversary in Hawaii. He is also survived by his oldest son, AJ Adrian and wife Angela, grandson Ashton, granddaughter Aliyah of Gardner, KS, his youngest son Justin Adrian and husband Randall Schneck of Overland Park, KS. Also surviving him are sister, Anita Page and partner Henry Evans of Lawton, OK and niece Michelle Matthey and husband Bill, great-nephew Quinn and great-niece, Bree of Elgin, OK. Also surviving are his fur babies Aria and Asha, who he loved dearly. He was preceded in death by his parents, George Buck and Mary Adrian; grandparents, Claude and Hassie Adrian and Dean and Myrtle Robinson; Aunts, Mary Lou Christopher and Billie Jean Sweatman; as well as many other aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Buck and Pam enjoyed going on cruises to the Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii and his favorite, The Panama Canal. They also loved going to Hawaii and were planning on moving there in July.
“G-Pa” (his name from the grandkids) thoroughly enjoyed watching his grandchildren in their various activities. He took his grandson, Ashton to soccer practices and just loved interacting with him on their rides to practices as well as going with Pam to his soccer games. He also enjoyed watching Aliyah play her violin in her school’s orchestra. Family time was important to Buck and he loved when they all were together and had fond memories of a family trip to Walt Disney World. Buck was a ‘car and truck man’ and could tell you what year, make and model most vehicles were by looking at/ listening to them. He enjoyed going to car shows with Pam in their 2010 “Transformer’s Edition” Camaro and attending Sporting KC soccer games of which they are season ticket holders.

A celebration of life will be held at Bruce Funeral Home (712 S. Webster St.) in Spring Hill, KS on Friday, June 21, 2019 at 7:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to Greater SPCA of KC-because of his fondness of animals, Sporting KC’s ‘The Victory Project’ supporting children with cancer, Colonial Williamsburg or the Alzheimer’s Association.

He will be greatly missed by his family, and by the friendships that he and Pam created during their years together. May he find peace on the other side of this life and comfort knowing that he may be gone but will never be forgotten.

Pam, I didn't know Buck very well, but he seemed like a wonderful husband to you and your family. I am so sorry that he is no longer with you and your family anymore. I know that, if was a Christian man, he is in the presence of our loving Father. What better place would you rather be than in a world of perfection where everything is beautiful and perfect in every way. I can't be there for the funeral, but I want you to know that you will be in my prayers and my families prayers during this time of bereavement.
