Frank Forrest Buck (born September 26, 1943, in Trousdale County) was a Tennessee politician and a member of the Tennessee House of Representatives for the 40th district, which is composed of DeKalb, Smith, and Macon counties. He was the son of John and Georgia Baird Buck. He has one brother, John William Buck. His father, John, started out as a sharecropper and eventually owned over 500 acres (2.0 km2) of land in Wilson, Smith and Trousdale counties. Neither of his parents completed the eighth grade, as they dropped out of school to work in the Great Depression. His father was stricken with polio while Buck was at Lebanon High School. His father spent many months at Vanderbilt Medical Center recovering, but never walked again. He served as a member of the House for thirty-six years. He was re-elected as a member of the Democratic Party. Buck was Vice-Chair of the House Transportation Committee and the Chair of the House Public Transportation and Highways Subcommittee.
