It is with deep sadness that the family of Kent Buckle announces his sudden passing at his home at the age of 32. Kent is lovingly remembered by his parents Dale and Diane (nee Kusch) Buckle of Bruno; his sister, Joelle Buckle of Saskatoon; his brother, Kyle (Kim) Buckle of Bruno; his sister, Shelene (Brian) Hoffman of Cudworth; his nephew, Eric Hoffman; and his niece, Payton Buckle. Kent will also be missed by his godparents Darrell and Shirley Kielau; his special Uncle Larry Buckle and numerous other aunts, uncles and cousins. Kent's smile and generous heart will be missed by all. Kent was born in Wakaw on November 25, 1979. He grew up on his parent's farm near Bruno. He attended Bruno School, graduating in 1998. He played broomball and hockey. He was a 4-H Beef club member and loved working with livestock. Kent was a hard worker and made big jobs look small. In 2001, he was very proud to buy his own farm where he lived until his passing. He is predeceased by his grandparents, Walter and Rita Kusch; Norman and Cecelia Buckle; and uncle and aunt, Don and Beverly Buckle. Prayers will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 7th and a Celebration of Kent's Life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 8th. Both services will be held at St. Bruno R.C. Church, Bruno, SK. Memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan or the Bruno Church Capital Fund. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Malinoski & Danyluik Funeral Home, Humboldt (306-682-1622).
