In Memorial








Roland “Barrie” Bueckert

April 6, 1945 – August 11, 2019

On August 11, 2019 Barrie Bueckert passed away peacefully at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home. He is survived by his wife Darlene, son Christopher and daughter Kimberly (Barry Herbert). Predeceased by his father Bev, mother Katherine and brother Brian. Barrie will be greatly missed by all his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law and their families.  Also our cousins and so many friends.

Barrie was born in Salmon Arm as were Darlene and both their children. They met in December at a sledding party and were married the following November. This November would have been their 54th Wedding Anniversary.

In the fall of 1972 they moved to Burnaby while he attended Vancouver Vocational School and received his Electronics Technician Degree. July 5, 1973 Barrie started to work for Westcoast Energy in Prince George as a Communications Technician. They stayed there for 5 years then transferred to Savona. The company’s name changed over the years from Westcoast Energy to Westcoast Transmission to Duke Energy and finally Spectra when Barrie retired after 30 years on December 31, 2003. Barrie enjoyed his job and always said there was never a day that he didn’t want to go to work.

Barrie liked to golf, play cards with friends and family. He always had a project on the go. Each one planned in detail then completed with the skill of an expert.  Darlene was always there to help where she could.  They loved to travel. Visiting, Mexico, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Australia and a few other places in the States. They also enjoyed years of travelling in their 5th wheel trailer with family and friends.

Barrie will always be remembered for his quick smile and laugh.

We will always love you and miss you.

There will be no service or celebration of life. A plaque will be placed on the Bueckert Memorial Headstone at Mount Ida Cemetery in Salmon Arm. A family celebration will be held at that time. Special thanks go to Dr. Lorenz for all his care during Barrie’s medical problems. The staff of the Royal  Inland Hospital and the wonderful caring people at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice. In lieu of flowers, donations in Barrie’s memory may be made to the Kidney foundation, Cancer Society or the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice home.

Aw Bar- you sure will be missed. You came into my life 54 years ago when I was 13 and you married my sister. You were my first brother-in-law and quickly became more like my brother. Like they say the first one is always special and you really were. I will miss you

Please accept my heart felt condolences on the passing of Barrie.
During the times I visited with him during the Clancy family gatherings he was always smiling and I thought he was a good guy. I always laughed when he teased your Mom during card games and conversations.
Please know you are in my thoughts during this time, I am so sorry for the loss of Barrie.
Take care Darlene.
Barry Campbell

I have so many great memories of him in our younger years, the fun and laughter that could be had by just playing cards.

Dear Darlene, Chris and Kim,
I am so sorry to hear of Barrie’s passing. He was a very special person and a wonderful cousin. I have many happy, funny, memories of the times we had at the Shuswap and in Salmon Arm when we were kids. We all tried to be good around Granny Wilson but that wasn’t always possible! I will miss his great laugh and kind personality. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Love, Jacquie
