Carter L. Bucknam

SPRINGFIELD - Carter Lee Bucknam, 8 months, of Springfield, passed away on Dec. 1, 2012, of SIDS. He was born at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center on March 12, 2012.

Carter was such a happy little man who loved watching SpongeBob with his father every day, having laughing contests with his mother, jumping up and down, making silly noises and faces, playing with his stuffed animals, being independent, showing off all the words he knew, being tickled, and making people smile.

Carter's life was short to most, but he brought such joy with his permanent smile and contagious laughter we are sure his memory will last forever.

Carter was survived by his parents, Shawn Kangas and Jessica Bucknam; aunts Nicole Kangas and Chelsea Huertas; uncles Brock Kangas and D.J. Bucknam; maternal grandparents Margot McCarthy and Brian Bucknam; great-grandparents Richard and Renate McCarthy; paternal grandparents Susanne Childs and Craig Kangas; great-grandparents Jeannette Childs and Bob and Cora Kangas and many more.
