Frederick “Rick” Charles Buckley, Jr. Born July 14, 1957 – Deceased August 21, 2014. Rick was a simple man. Born in Illinois, but raised in California, Rick found his way to the United States Air Force. The USAF led him to Missouri and forever changed his life. He worked for several companies over the years, never really liking any of them.
He is survived by a family which he connected from several parts. As there is no distinguishing between his children, he leaves behind four sons: Frederick “Fred” Charles Buckley III, Patrick James Buckley, Cory Allen Oravecz, and William Anthony Buckley; and five daughters: Danielle Jacqueline Orr, Cherish Dawn Caputo, Ketrin Lorraine Adam, Melissa Luann Buckley and Ashley Elizabeth Krah. He also leaves behind several grandchildren and his beloved dog, Honey Girl.
The family will be having a celebration of life on Sunday, August 31, at 4 pm at Ward Park, 1000 SW 22nd St. Blue Springs, MO. The family ask that guest bring a side dish and their own meat. There will be a balloon release at 5 pm, for a dollar donation people will receive a balloon and marker to share their favorite memory of Rick.
