Bucky passed away at his home in Curve Lake First Nation on January 27, 2021. He was in his 77th year.
Bucky lived life to the fullest. He was a happy-go-lucky guy with a heart of gold who made friends with everyone he met. He loved his family and his many friends beyond measure.
Over the years, Bucky has been a fisherman, ball player, and golfer. He liked to watch baseball and hockey. He was a story-teller, a language-keeper who was fluent in Anishinaabemowin, and a source of community and family history.
He will be greatly missed by his brother Merritt (Mary), son Dean, and his many nieces, nephews, cousins, ex-girlfriends and friends.
He rejoins many of his loved ones, who will be so happy to be teased by him once again, including his Mom Olive, Dad Henry, his brothers Leo, Billy and Winston and his sisters Agnes, Barbara and Liza.
Due to COVID-19, the big celebration of his life that he wanted will have to wait.
