VALE – Richard (Dick) Buick 10/07/1939 to 24/11/2020November 26, 2020
It is with great sadness the Buick family wish to announce the passing of a Murray grey legend Mr Dick Buick.
Dick lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday 24th November, surrounded by family.
As a farmer all his life, Dick (with his wife Jill-now deceased) became a member of the Murray Grey Society when he began the Arki Stud on Kangaroo Island (SA) in August 1973. The family moved to Western Flat near Bordertown in May 1984 and continued running the stud until it was passed onto son Geoff and wife Kate.
Dick and Jill also began the Beeamma stud in 2002 and this was passed onto daughter Denise and her husband Anthony in 2005.
Dick was awarded Life membership of the Society in 2016 when Murray Greys were the feature breed at the Royal Adelaide Show and were celebrating 50 years of showing, for his long standing involvement and promotion of the breed.
Dick was a staunch supporter of the Murray Grey breed and his knowledge and companionship will be sadly missed.
