CONCORD – Michael J. Buckley, 64, of Concord, N.H., died on April 1, 2018 after a brief illness.
Michael was born and raised in Concord where he lived most of his life and, for a short time, on the Maine seacoast. He graduated from Bishop Brady High School in 1972 and Keene State College in 1978. Michael was an avid runner, bicyclist, and hiker for many years. He completed the Clarence DeMar Marathon, Keene Marathon and helped build the Mt. Washington Observatory. He embraced new ideas, supported equality, held a strong sense of community – a social progressive in the best way. Michael loved to learn and teach. He taught spin class at the Racquet Club of Concord – before it became chic. He instilled meaningful morals and values to his daughters and nieces. You could always find him making Seinfeld references, reading about history, watching movies, and above all, devoted to family. Some of his favorite times were summers spent with his family in Rye Beach, N.H.
Michael was predeceased by his parents, Joseph C. and Margaret Buckley. He will be remembered and sadly missed by his family – including his daughters, Meagan Buckley Leonard, husband Matt and grandsons Liam and Fitz of Richmond, Vt., and Alyssa Buckley Couture and husband Dave, also of Richmond, Vt.; his sister Kathy McCabe and husband Wayne of Concord, nieces Erin Hass of Washington, D.C., and Colleen Hass of New York, brother Timothy and wife Stephanie and nephew Connor and niece Sophia of Henniker, N.H., sister Tricia Buckley of Newburyport, Mass., and cousins, Peter and Jim Daley, Susan Fortier, Nancy Bourque and Steven Johnson.
Visiting hours will be Friday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Waters Funeral Home 50 South Main Street, Concord.
A memorial service will follow at 11 a.m. in the chapel of the Waters Funeral Home.
In memory of his favorite radio segment "Car Talk," the family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in his name to New Hampshire Public Radio.
