I would suspect that the people who knew about Bucky's passing generally
figured someone else would post the information.  There's a lot of this
going on these days.

I just got the info from Ed.  This is very very sad.  Bucky was a good
friend, a fine person, and a valuable asset to the Society.  As with many
others, he will be greatly missed by those who knew him.  I'll always
remember his kindness and support.
