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.
