Passed away September 21, 2014, at home suddenly at the age of 63. Buck was born in Dallas on Jan. 23, 1951 to Barbara Groves Paschall and Charles E. Paschall Sr. He was preceded in death by his parents, Barbara G. Paschall and Charles E. Paschall Sr., of Highland Park.
Buck graduated Highland Park High School and Texas Tech University where he earned a degree in business and lettered in football. He was a loyal member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity at Tech and enjoyed SAE and Tech events throughout his life. He was also a member of The Terpsichorean Club, Calyx Club, Brook Hollow Golf Club, Park City Club and Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Fla.
He will always be remembered as a loving husband, brother, father, step-father, grandfather, and friend. Buck was larger than life to all who knew and loved him, he was gregarious, fun-loving, and always sported a contagious laugh and smile. Whether it was hunts on the ranch in South Texas, playing golf, sport fishing, boating, or horseracing, all who shared in his amazing life were forever touched by Buck’s big heart.
He is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Mary Ann Paschall, who felt he was the greatest man she had ever known. He was a loving, fun, and caring husband, step-father, father, and brother. His wife felt he loved his boat as much as he did her. He loved his grandchildren and felt his grandson, Jimmy, hung the moon. He is also survived by two sisters: Barbara Averitt and husband Don, Sue John and husband Phil, all of Dallas; step-daughter, Allison Thies and husband Jimmy; grandchildren, Paige and Jimmy Thies, all of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; his loving dog, Sophie, and three daughters: Stephanie, Elizabeth and Peyton of Dallas.
