Street dedication for Joseph Buckner, "Joe Buck".

32 year old Joseph Buckner was a husband, father, son, grandson, brother, cousin, and friend.. "Joe Buck" was an important part of our community, who has touched the lives of so many people in the Kankakee & surrounding areas. Joe joined forces with area barbers to see that children in need could recieve free back- to-school hair cuts. Joe would give free hair cuts to those going on job interviews. He was an honest, hard working man, who provided for his wife and three young daughters. Joe was someone everyone knew, someone everyone liked, and someone who could put a smile one anyones face. A truly "good" person. On November 25, 2011 Joe's life was taken in an act of violence. Joe was the victom of an armed robbery. In life Joe touched so many lives, and he continues to do so. In the darkest hour of this tragedy, the community has come together to seek justice for Joe and to put and end to violence. Hundreds of people express the desire to make a change, to make a difference and to see that this does not happen in our community again. So many lives have been lost in the Kankakee and surrounding areas due to acts of violence. To dedicate a street in Joseph Buckners name would keep Joe in our memories, to honor him, to remember the things he did for our community, to remind ourselves what happened to Joe, remember all of those who have lost thier lives in Kankakee County in acts of violence, and to allow this dedication to encourage everyone to make a difference, to stop the violence. This dedication will only further the positive ideas, and encourage change in our community. Joe's death has brought a community together, and enspired so many to put an end to the senseless loss of life. Please Join us and Petition for this dedication in his memory!
