Ken Buck learned the value of hard work from his grandfather, who opened a shoe repair store in Greeley in the 1930’s. One of three brothers, Ken worked his way through high school, college and law school as a janitor, truck driver, furniture mover and as a ranch hand.
Ken graduated from Princeton University where he played football for the Tigers. He received his law degree from the University of Wyoming in 1985 and coached high school football while finishing law school.
After law school, Ken worked for Congressman Dick Cheney (R-WY) on the Iran-Contra Investigation and then became a prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice. In 1990 Ken joined the Colorado U.S. Attorney’s Office where he became the Chief of the Criminal Division.
In 2002 Ken joined Hensel Phelps Construction Co. in Greeley as a business executive.
