It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Timothy Thomas "Bucky" Buchanan, 64, of Moncton, NB, at the Moncton Hospital on Thursday, October 12, 2023.

Born in Fredericton, he was the son of the late Walter and Anita (Lirette) Buchanan.

Tim grew up in St. Catharines, ON, and had a successful career in the hospitality industry making very close friendships that were like family to him, many of whom he kept close contact with upon retirement.  His family decided to move to Moncton and closer to his siblings and relatives.  After fighting the good fight and beating cancer on three previous occasions, he lost the final battle to this terrible disease.  Throughout his illness he always maintained a positive attitude, never revealing his pain and suffering.

Tim will be dearly missed by his loving wife and best friend, Kelly; his adored son, Michael; sister, Carol (Ed) Morneau; brothers, Bill (Sonia), Rick (Helen), and Terry (Rosa); brothers-in-law, Rick (Joanne) and Danny (Sue) Chetyrbuk, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Tim's family wishes to extend their deepest gratitude to Extra-Mural Staff, especially Holly, all of The OR Staff of the Moncton Hospital, and Joan (our Earth Angel) and Brian Peddle for their exceptional care and support.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, (506-364-1300).  Honouring Tim's wishes, cremation has taken place and there is to be a private graveside service in the Holy Rosary and St. Vincent Ferrier Cemetery, Middle Sackville, NB.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in Tim's memory may do so to the Moncton Hospital OR Department.

Sharing of memories and condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the online memorial at www.jonesfuneralhome.ca or through the Jones Funeral Home Facebook page.
