Buck was born Sunday, December 21, 1941 in San Saba, Texas to Alton Aubry and Willie May Whitley Till.

He spent his work years in auto part sales. Buck really enjoyed the interaction with people. In his retirement, he enjoyed traveling, especially to the casinos and raising cattle with his wife, Angie.

His love for music was a huge part of his life. Buck loved Elvis and country music. He loved to sing and in his early years would play and sing Elvis to entertain his captive audience, his daughters.

Buck got the most joy in his retirement years working with the Guardian Angels at St. Mary Catholic Church and at the Grimes County Senior Center in Anderson.

Buck is preceded in death by his parents, and his wife, Angie McLaurin-Till.

Survivors include his daughters: Sabra Jacobs and husband, Donavon of Round Rock, Natalie Briggs and husband, Jared, of Temple, and Lisa Davis and husband, Lester, of Houston; and a son, John Rodney McLaurin of Tomball.

The family wishes to extend a thank you to the many doctors, nurses, nurses aides, housekeepers, food service workers, physical and occupational therapist that worked with Buck along his journey.
