Buckley, Eric. R. It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of our father, brother, family member and friend Eric Buckley of West Roxbury on March 17, 2021. Eric is predeceased by his parents Cornelius and Theresa (Peters) Buckley, and brother Michael Buckley. He is survived by his sons Cody of Arlington, and Eric of Wellesley, dear friend Linda O’Brien of Wellesley, loving sister Terry Flynn and her husband Paul of Dedham, and devoted uncle to his niece Alana. Eric is also survived by many loving family members and friends. Eric was a bright light with a beautiful smile always happy to see family and friends. Most of all he cherished his time with his sons whether it was a hockey game, a dinner out, fishing or just a simple walk. He also had many accomplishments and shared his gifts freely. Most notably his skilled carpentry, whether it was building a family room addition at 18 years old or helping family or friends with a home renovation project. Heaven is a better place today and Eric will be greatly missed. Till we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand, we love you.
