Robert "Bob" Edward Buckley, USCGR, 85, of Highlands Ranch, Colo., passed away surrounded by his loving family March 30. Robert is survived by his wife of 63 years, Mary Anne, as well as his children John (Terri), Colleen Soto and Phillip (Cathi); grandchildren Joshua Robert (Laura), Natalie Anne (Stephen), Erin, Nathan (Marissa), Alex and Nicole; and great-grandchildren Kaitlyn, William, Oliver and Roselyn. Buckley, who was born March 3, 1933, in Baldwin, N.Y., served his first four years of a long military career as a corpsman in the Navy during the Korean Conflict, then in the Coast Guard Reserve from 1959-1993 and 2000-2005. He was a Los Angeles County deputy sheriff from 1956-64. He earned three letters of commendation during those eight years, including one for apprehending a robber despite being wounded during an exchange of gunfire. He was awarded a Purple Heart and a Silver Star (Valor) during his career. Cmdr. Buckley found a love of teaching, and he became an instructor at the Modesto Junior College Criminal Justice Training Center. After retirement, he continued to be a law enforcement mentor and volunteer. He loved many things, delicious food, smooth wine, playing basketball with his grandkids and listening to classic music, but the thing he loved most was his family.
