Five great grandchildren, Tyler, Clarissa, Austin, Stephen, and Adam.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, James McPeak and a sister, Margaret Snyder.

There were few strangers in “Bucky’s” life. His sparkling eyes, Irish humor, and love of life will be deeply mourned by his sorrowing friends and family.

My deepest sympathy goes to Bucky’s family and friends. He was a dear friend of the Grau family, whose daughter, Sue, is a dear friend of mine. As we grew up, I often heard about, and occasionally had the opportunity to meet, Bucky and Ila. I know Bucky will be greatly missed by many.
