2017 Donate Life Rose Float-Louisiana Floragraph Honoree-Ricardo "Buck" Brown

We introduce to you, Hero and the Louisiana 2017 Donate Life Rose Parade Float Floragraph honoree, Ricardo “Buck” Brown.

Ricardo’s Floragraph will be on the Donate Life Rose Parade Float, themed Teammates in Life, during the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA on January 2, 2017. His mother, Bonita, offered us these words.

"The Master’s Plan was revealed and Buck found his purpose. He lived and loved unconditionally. He visited the sick, befriended the elderly and inspired the young and old. Unbeknownst to me, Buck had made the decision to give back what God had given to him. On 2/24/11 he registered as an organ, eye & tissue donor. His purpose had been fulfilled. Buck was called home at the age of 23 on 4/3/11. It was Buck’s wishes to give Life out of Death. Because of Buck’s wishes to give back, lives were saved and changed in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. I thank God that Buck lives on.”
