    • Archie Styles Noonkester was named after his father, but his grandfather Noonkester called him "Buck" and the name stuck with him until his untimely death on May 24, 2013. April 27, 2015, would have marked your 77 year birthday. You had the God-given gift of articulating stories of your escapades with your cowboy friends roping and rounding-up wild horses in the Mojave Desert. When we see your horses out on the ranch, it sometimes appears as if they are waiting for your return for one more ride. You, Buck, were one of a kind. You were more than a guy riding and roping horses, a singing cowboy or possibly even the best poker player this side of Maverick. You were a man with a quick wit and the ability to make those around you laugh. What a blessing huh? But there was a serious side of you that most did not see. Because you were more comfortable making friends laugh that boasting about your business accomplishments; and there were many, such as, you and brother Obie building El Macero CC, or you building San Joaquin CC, building "Heather Farms GC", and upgrading Round Hill CC. You were regarded as one of the most highly respected golf course superintendents in the business. When you and brother Bennie accepted Bob Baldock's offer to build YLP Course, your life changed forever. You were home and here you would plant your roots. Our faith and hope in Christ Jesus guarantee us that someday we will reunite with each other, "on the other side of the river". [Source: Fresno Bee, Fresno, California, April 27, 2015]
