After graduating the University of Arkansas he spent over 45 years working in the

Buck was a man of faith, who put his trust in the promise of eternity assured by the
blood of Jesus Christ. During his life he was blessed to be a member of three
wonderful church families; Temple Baptist Church of Springdale, AR, Flat Creek
Baptist Church of Fayetteville, GA, and the First
Baptist Church of Huntingburg, IN. Throughout his Christian life, Buck was
always involved with teaching Sunday School classes to various age groups. He

most discussed and enjoyed being his adventures in
ministry with the High School youth of Temple Baptist Church.
Buck loved working. He never retired and was still traveling extensively up until
his health restricted his ability to get behind the wheel. His favorite things in life
outside of work were spending time on lakes playing in the water, fishing, canoeing
the rivers of Arkansas and Missouri (before it was cool), golfing, pulling for the
Razorbacks in everything and keeping up with the exploits of his nine grandchildren.

of his earthly life, his wife Donna Fields Pyle.

Ella, Nik, Brock, Teague and Simms Greer, all of Acworth; and Zack, Seth, Drew
and Adelia Pyle of Andrews; two wonderful Sisters in Law, Sharron Wooldridge

My heart & prayers have been & will continue to be with the entire Pyle family. I
have seen so much love within your family from pictures, posts, etc that it is
inspiring to know families still love & connect in the way that your family exhibited.
Buck was such a blessed man to have all of you...what more on this side of heaven
could he have desired? Absolutely nothing. May God Bless & comfort your hearts
as only He can. Love to all
My sincere sorrow for the passing of your dad. I considered him a true and trusted
friend who often provided wise counsel. His sense of humor was superb. His love
for Christ was evidenced by example. His presence at FBC Huntingburg will be
sorely missed. I truly believe that at a glimpse into Heaven today would find Buck
bowed in gratitude before the throne. May God pour His Mercy and Grace upon
you Pastor Bob Borden
I am deeply sorry to learn of the loss of your father Andy; your father in law Kelly
and your grandfather Zack, Seth, Drew and Adelia.
You all are in my prayers.
If all families could have a "Buck" many more would feel life much fuller and more
enjoyable. That smile and the gleam his eyes held is heavens gain. We miss him.
God bless you all.
Working with Buck @ Ivesco for many years was a great privilege, being Buck's
long time friends outside of work was a great honor.
