Condolences

Condolence From: Nancy Holloway
Condolence: Dr. Buckley did so much for so many people at NASA Langley, especially the Apprentices, technicians and students. He taught a Materials course for many apprentices and I can say hands-down that this was the most useful course in my career. He was also very innovative and worked many ideas which became patents and papers. Dr. Buckley always pushed the envelope and not to sit still. He was a great man and very special person in my life. I miss him so much.

Condolence From: Charlie Cox
Condolence: He was a national treasure, a once in a creation kind of man.

He was a navigator in fighter bombers in Korea, went to school on the GI Bill and earned a Phd in Ceramic Engineering from Clemson. From there he went on to an amazing and rewarding career with NASA where, among other things, he designed and developed many parts of the Viking Lander (some of the components of the cameras in your cell phones today are his patented designs), he developed and patented a method for induction welding (cold) that I still do not understand today, and he mentored several astronauts. Among then was Bonnie Dunbar. He knew and worked with some of the women who were the inspiration for the movie Hidden Figures.

Most importantly, he was a faithful and dutiful husband, a servant in his community, and a loving father. He left an indelible and positive impression on me that I pray I have the strength to honor in my years ahead.

He was THAT exceptional of a man.

I remember him as a very kind and gentle man with a wonderful sense of humor. His intelligence was always obviously there, even as lowering tide of Alzheimer's slowly took him.

I am far richer for having known him even briefly, and we are all much the poorer for his loss.

I pray peace and comfort for the entire Buckley, Pearl, and Brody clans.
