He married his first wife Jillian Applebee in 1975, and they had two children, Holly and Tim.

Terence (Terry) Buckley

Terry attended Boston College Law School and worked for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as an Assistant General Counsel. He retired in 2014.

Terry had many interests. He enjoyed reading, especially history and British mysteries. He also loved music, went to concerts frequently, and liked to crank up the volume on the car radio. He had great personal warmth, a remarkable memory, and a deep, yet understated sense of humor. 

But Terry’s greatest loves were his three children and six grandchildren, his golden retriever Lucy, and the game of bridge.

A private memorial is planned.
