Andrus S. "Bucky" LaValley

LOUDONVILLE — Andrus S. "Bucky" LaValley, 75, of Loudonville passed away suddenly on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at his residence.

He was born in Mineville, N.Y. on Jan. 11, 1938 and was the son of the late Eli and Rosina LaValley.

Bucky graduated from Water- vliet High School Class of 1955 and served in the United States Marine Corps. He was employed by Nashua Corporation for 33 years as a supervisor in the tape division.

He enjoyed playing cards with his friends, playing the horses and loved all sports. Bucky was a happy-go-lucky-guy who believed you were only as good as your word. He loved teasing his sisters and his sisters were a good influence and kept him in line to become the person he was.

His heroic efforts on March 20, 1977 saved the lives of four children from their burning home in Halfmoon, N.Y. He will always be known as a hero to his loving family.

Bucky is survived by his children's mother, Barbara SuhalIa; by his son, Douglas (Linda); by his daughters, Gina Berthiuame and Tammy (Jeff); by seven grandchildren; and one great-grandchild. He is also survived by his three sisters, Clara Rabideau, Ann (Richard) Kinney, and Deborah Waddell (Michael Brockway); and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Bucky was predeceased by his sisters, Theresa LaValley, Rita LaValley, Doris White, and Mildred Bodah; and by his brother, Maurice LaValley.
