Obituary for Clinton "Buck" Small

Clinton “Buck” Small died peacefully at home on Thursday, November 8, 2018, due to complications from Parkinson’s Disease. He was 88.

Clint was born on September 7, 1930, in Akron, IA, to Avery and Grace Small. He graduated from Akron High School in 1949. After serving in the United States Air Force, he attended the University of South Dakota, graduating in 1954 with a B. S. in Marketing.

He married Kathleen Boden on August 2, 1951. The Small’s lived in several Midwest cities as he pursued his career in the insurance field. In 1970, they moved to Peoria, where he retired from Westfield Companies in 1994. He spent many hours serving St. Jude Catholic Church, where he was a charter member. Clint enjoyed coaching youth baseball and was a member of the Knights of Columbus. As an avid golfer, he was always ready for a chance to compete on the golf course.

Clint is survived by his wife and their 3 children: Steve (Sue) Small and Mary (Roger) Nelson, all of Dunlap, and Tim (Tammy) Small of Clarksville, MI, 10 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, and 3 siblings: Ramona Govig, James Small and Gayland Small.

Clint was preceded in death by his parents and siblings: Vernice, Wilma, Kenneth, William, Ivyl, Eldon, Clayton, Roscoe, Fay, Vernard, and Karen. He was also preceded in death by 2 brothers-in-law, Gordon Boden and Chuck Boden.

Our family would like to thank the many fantastic caregivers who helped us throughout Clint’s illness. We would also like to thank Unity Point Hospice for their services over the last year.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, November 14, 2018, at noon at St. Jude Catholic Church. Visitation will be on Tuesday, November 13, from 3:30-5:30 PM at St. Jude Catholic Church and one hour before Mass on Wednesday. Fr. Patrick Henehan will officiate. A burial will follow at 3:00 PM, at St. Clements Cemetery in Dunlap, IL.
