    Uncle Bucky was a wonderful person. I always remember how he loved to fix things - anything!! I remember him from all of the overnights I shared w/ Nancy and Patty, from my summer living in Texas in 1968, shared Thanksgiving dinners and what a great tour guide he was on our trip out West in 1971. And I remember his neat home movies, especially the one of all of you cousins climbing aboard the mock lunar landing module!
    He was a kind and gentle man always ready to tell a corny joke about everything. I'm sorry I am not able to be there to share this sad time with you. I remember how he was hoping to strike it rich by searching out treasure on the beach and how important it was for him to ride his bike to Mass everyday.
    Lots of Love to Aunt Bunny and to all of you.
    Mary Lou

    Dear Aunt Bunny and Cousins,
    How you must miss "Bucky". He was the sweetest, most unselfish man I know . He always had a kind word, cheerful disposition and giving heart even when suffering. I treasure memories from 50+ years ago when I would stay at your home and help with all the little ones. Yes, you kids were a handful!!Bucky was always the picture of patience, and someone who leaves us with nothing but the best of memories and an example of good living. I am sorry I cannot be there to day goodbye.
    Mary Ann

    Uncle Bucky was a man who made everyone feel welcome. We loved talking with him about his children, his travels and his time with Bell and Disney. We shared an interest in old trains. There was no end to the love he showed his wife and children. No man is perfect but Uncle Bucky would be a good role model for all of us. We can't be there at this time as we will be with our son in NH. Our thoughts and prayers wil be with you all. Love Rick & Pat

    Uncle Bucky: You will be sorely missed by your family and friends. You affected my life in many ways from the fond memories at the cottage in Canada to the frequent weekends I stayed at your house in Tonawanda. I will always remember you as a kind man with a big heart. A person who knew no bonderies when it came to giving of himself. You lived a life to be proud of! Miss you already.
    Your Niece: Lisa Tepas

    My condolences go out to Aunt Bunny, and cousins Ron, Ken, Nancy, Patty and Bonnie. My favorite Uncle, Uncle Bucky, loved his stories and his smile. Mark, my husband, enjoyed talking baseball with him over a beer. Our boys, Bryan and Sean have fond memories of their great Uncle Bucky. Sorry that we can not be there to celebrate his life.
    He will be missed.
    Love, Lori

    My heart goes out to all of you, especially Aunt Bunny. Uncle Bucky was always positive. Brian liked to swap tales of curb side treasures, and Elaine remembers how he would make his own lemonade at the restaurant. A lot of fun times between our families. Bless you all. We will miss him. With love, Brian, Peggy, Elaine and Eric
