IN MEMORY OF LONG TIME EAGLE COACH AND VOLUNTEER FRANK "BUCKY" BUCHANAN
Submitted By Communications on Tuesday, March 10, 2020
It is with a heavy heart that the Burlington Eagles announces the passing of Frank 'Bucky' Buchanan and extend our condolences to the Buchanan family.

Frank was involved with the Burlington Eagles organization as a coach, general manager of the Cougars and a loyal volunteer with the Golden Horseshoe as well as Baseball and Basketball.  He worked tirelessly for the youth of the Burlington  community and was selected to the Burlington Sports Hall of fame. He will be remembered for his sense of humor and his ability to  positively impact the many athletes he mentored.  He will be missed.



BUCHANAN, Frank ‘Bucky’ On Monday March 9, 2020, at the age of 83, Frank ‘Bucky’ Buchanan passed away at Oakville Trafalgar Hospital. Frank will be sadly missed by his beloved spouse Beverly Barr (nee Mullins) and children Heather Buchanan Curren, Judy Buchanan (Michelle) and Ross Buchanan (Jelissa). He will be remembered fondly by Kelly Barr (Mark) and Jan Barr and missed dearly by his grandchildren, Duncan Curren, Carter, Presley and Reagan Buchanan, Shae and Niall Hynes and Sarah Pollice. Frank will be missed by his sister Nathalie, nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. 

Frank will be remembered for his friendly quick-witted sense of humour and boisterous voice that could echo through a crowd. He will be missed by the many friends he made along the way, including those on the Burlington Lions Club and the Burlington Sports Community. 

Frank devoted over 50 years to the Burlington sport community, specifically hockey, baseball and basketball. He is the recipient of the A.J. Dunn Sports Person of the Year Award (1989) and a Burlington sports Hall of Famer. 

Friends will be received by the family on Friday, March 13th from 3 - 5 pm and 7 - 9 pm at SMITH'S FUNERAL HOME, 1167 Guelph Line (one stop light north of QEW), BURLINGTON (905-632-3333). 

Cremation will have taken place. Private interment at a later date. The family welcomes all to a Celebration of Frank’s Life on Sunday, March 29th from 12 - 3 pm at Emma’s Backporch in Burlington. 

In lieu of flowers, the family would greatly welcome donations in memory of Bucky to Jumpstart Canadian Tire. www.smithsfh.com
