On July 05, 2021, our family said goodbye to a good man. Mack Loren Bucknell was many things – a husband, a father, a grandfather, a friend, a veteran, a hunting/fishing buddy, and a member of two unions. For the past 45 years Mack has been Dad (he lost the “step-dad” designation long ago).
Mack was born in Burlington, Colorado, son of Clifford and Bertha (Schmidt) Bucknell. He had one younger sister, Lorraine Bucknell. All of whom preceded him in death.
He served in the Army during the Korean War. For decades he worked in heavy construction building and repairing roads. Later he became a general contractor and then in “retirement” he did handyman and landscaping work. Not one to sit around he was busy all the time – but never too busy to lend a helping hand when anyone asked for help.
Mack is survived by his wife, Mary Bucknell, and stepchildren Deborah Marie (King) Messina, Elizabeth Anne King, and James Rowan King, six grandchildren and eleven greatgrandchildren.
Mack’s HUGE personality made him friends wherever he went – even in his last days.
That he will be missed - is an understatement.
