Last year marked Buckeye’s 50th anniversary so Block, grandson of late founder Paul Block, made sure things were celebrated in style with a yearlong event of celebrations, giveaways and special events, honoring the milestone. One was the gift of free service to Rev. John E. Roberts (and his church) for a year in honor of Roberts being Buckeye’s first customer back in 1965.
