Charles "Chuck" R. Buckley, Jr., age 59, of Pensacola, FL, was taken from our lives much too early on Monday, May 28, 2007. Chuck was born February 24, 1948 in Newport, RI. His family moved to Panama City in 1954. Chuck was an EBS Lifeguard at Panama City Beach and served in the U.S. Navy for four years. After graduation from Gulf Coast Community College, he moved to Pensacola in 1974 to attend University of West Florida. While attending school he worked on various jobs and had his own computer school for several years. He closed his computer school and went to work at Sacred Heart Hospital in their computer department. He eventually returned to school and earned his Master's Degree in Business Administration from UWF which led him to teaching computer programming. He was a great teacher and well liked by all his students. Chuck was truly a modern renaissance man. A great cook at home, a computer technician, a golfer, a unicycle rider in his youth, and co-owner of DanBuck International, Bamboo wood flooring, in Pensacola. Chuck was always curious to learn, helpful to everyone who met him, and he loved his family very much. His quiet demeanor belied his knowledge, wisdom and life experience. Chuck was a man of few words, but when he spoke people listened.
