Walter "Bucky" McCord member #0672022 Moatsville, West Virginia
Member of Windmill Ridge Chapter 672
Bucky held the office of Tail gunner in our Chapter. He always had our backs and watched over us whether on a ride or just hanging out. He loved riding his "Yamaha". He didn't hold it against the ones with "Harley's" for not riding a "better" bike! He was a devoted husband, father, and friend; he was looking forward to spending more time with his wife, now that the kids were grown. He worked with his father-in-law, enjoying riding with him as often as they could. He always brought a light to everything he was involved with, a ready smile and laugh first and foremost. We will miss him greatly.
