Buck Gilliam
(Memorial for a very special 'Friend of James Rogers')

*****

I'm sure many of us remember Buck Gilliam.
We could always count on Buck to be there, selling tapes, photos, and other merchandise, running the videos, and helping set up and take down sets,
for James' shows at Dollywood, and many other places that they traveled to.
He was a very friendly, likable man...a 'one of a kind' type man...and one we will never forgotten.
It was from Buck, that I first heard the phrase, "This [James Rogers Show] is the best show on the park!"
And he meant it too! He was convincing enough, that we (my family and I) decided to try this 'James Rogers Show'.
After that first time we saw James perform, we totally agreed with Buck, and became great friends with him, his family, and with James Rogers.
Buck and his wife, Vonda were very gracious hosts, and invited us into their home on many occasions.
They became our family, and their home...became our...'home away from home'.

Those were very special and happy times.

Sunday, Feb. 27th, 2011, marks the 14th year since Buck left this life...
.. and I thought it would be a good time to add this page...dedicated to his memory.
