the buck stops here

2401_1086891899443_6407_nLarger-than-life Floridian Dennis “Buck” Gillette was a staple in SORC’s illustrious history, and a major cheerleader for the new and successful SORC that’s come to prominence over the past few years.  Buck loved mentoring kids on offshore races, and had about a trillion miles under his keel before falling off his boat and not coming out of the water at a LYC event at Ocean Reef on Sunday.  Here’s a pic exactly the way Buck would have wanted it; enjoying a sail with Mimi at his side.  Our thoughts go out to everyone Buck has touched, and here’s to hoping the next generation produces another one like him.  Here are the details about the memorial ceremony, and from the obit:  Buck will be greatly missed by his wife of 54 years, Mimi, his 102 year old father Delno, his children Rex (Karin) Gillette, Sarah (Tom) Fox, Rebecca (Marcio) Pancera and his grandchildren Jake, J.T., and Mack Fox, Max and Cole Gillette, and Tess and Siena Pancera. A Celebration of Life gathering will be held at Lauderdale Yacht Club from 2-4 PM 1725 SE 12th Street 33316. In lieu of flowers please send donations in Buck’s name to a charity of your choice.   

Share condolences on Buck’s Facebook Page.
