Leroy "Buck" Linke: 1924-2011
Buck Linke was once a common face around Ruston. He lived on Winnifred Street in an old house that still stands in sharp contrast to the new home next door. He worked for the town, seen here driving the shiny new garbage truck in 1958. He was retired by the time I met him, but he was always full of stories. Despite his rough edges, he had a twinkle in his eye and quick smile. Rest in peace, Buck... You can view his obituary via this link here...
