February 16, 1968 - February 19, 2021
It is with deep and utter sorrow that these words are reaching you. On February 19, 2021, Christopher Buckman, 53, left our world to join the next. His life was one of love and service that reflected the true nature of his very core. Growing up in a loving home in Long Island laid the very foundation that bestowed in him the gift of knowing and loving others. He served his country in the Coast Guard with love in his heart as he cared for those he met overseas. Though at times he faced challenges that proved overwhelming to ordinary men, he continued to overcome with a servant's heart. His zest for life and perseverance eventually won him the devotion of his soul mate, Michelle. He was rewarded with blessings of a loving home of his own where he made the most of the little things. He showered his most treasured blessings - his family - with great affection and tenderness. His adorations extended beyond himself, affecting the lives of countless friends, neighborhood children, fellow service veterans, and even stray animals, of which one recently landed him in the emergency room for tetanus treatment. A safe home for all is what he genuinely sought. His loving, protective presence will be wholly missed by his survivors, cherished wife Michelle, adored children Ashley, Danielle, and Brennan, beloved mother Bernie, dear father-in-law Larry, sister Theresa, brother Matt, brothers-in-law Jason and Matt, sister- in-law Carole, darling nieces and nephews Colin. Marissa, Nicholas, Christian and Lily, precious pets Tiffany, Stormy and Smokey, and favored friends. Chris is gone from us too soon, but his essence will live on in the lives of those he loved. To honor his memory, the family respectfully requests to please consider sharing a random act of kindness, or perhaps, a great feat of love. Thank you. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, services were held at Ascension Lutheran Church for the immediate family. A summertime celebration of his life is being planned in August.
