Michael “Mikey” Buckley of Flagstaff, Arizona passed peacefully January 26, 2019 at home surrounded by family and friends.  Born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin on March 13, 1949 he had been a well-loved member of the Flagstaff community since 1988.  Mikey served in the United States Marine Corps and was a Vietnam Veteran.  He is perhaps best known for his sunny disposition, toothy grin and distinctive giggle.  He was active among veteran groups including Veterans of Foreign Wars, The American Legion, and Marine Corps League.  He loved music, his dogs, and scotch. Mikey was well liked by everyone he met and will be missed greatly.  

He is survived by his wife Billie Rush, daughter Jaime Jacobson, sons Shawn Buckley and Ryan Buckley; brothers Tim Buckley and Chuck Buckley; grandsons Taylor Price and Trevor Price.  He was preceded in death by his parents, William Buckley and Shirley Buckley, brother Bill Buckley and sister Ann Madrid.
