Michael Ray Buckley

Apr. 15, 1970 - Sep. 23, 2020

BURLEY – Michael Ray Buckley, a 50 year-old resident of Burley, passed away at home on Sept. 23, 2020.

Michael was born on April 15th, 1970, to Royce Gould and Patricia Jean Buckley in Burley, Idaho. Mike grew up in Oakley, Idaho, and spent many years hunting and fishing along the Oakley reservoir. This was an activity that he would pass the love for onto his son, Jacoby.

Mike was a good father, brother, and friend. He would easily give the shirt off his back if someone asked him for it, just as easily as he would teach someone to hunt a deer. He is survived by his three siblings: Janet Adams, Carrie (Greg) Fairchild, and Steven (Tina) Buckley. His many nieces and nephews will miss their uncle’s pranks and jokes that would keep them on their toes. Mike is also survived by only son, Jacoby Buckley. The pair were thick as thieves and Jacoby was Mike’s best friend.

Mike’s arrangements have been placed in the care of Rasmussen-Wilson Funeral Home of Burley.

From David Miller:
I am sorry to hear about Mike's passing and my condolences to your family. Mike and I did alot together as kids growing up and some of it wasn't bad. One of my memories was a time when Mike and I built a fort in one of the irrigation ditches behind the Bucley house. We were very proud of our achievement and were sure it would withstand any attacks that may come to our little town. We eventually grew bored of our war game and moved on to other things and gave our fort no more thought until the following spring when the irrigation was turned on and proceeded to flood multiple field's.
Rest in Peace

Very sad to hear about Mike. I had the privilege to reconnect with Mike not long ago, helping him through an injury. Laughed a lot at old memories and funny stories of Oakley. He had a huge heart and will surely be missed.

From JJ Gee:
I send my condolences to all of you. Mike was a great guy. I recall watching Conan the Barbarian way to many times, and all of Arnolds other block buster 80's movies, lifting a lot of weights and learning a bunch of principles from Steve. This activity was a bonding between the two brothers. We would hang out reading bodybuilding magazines, drive all over the countryside in the bad a**'d blue Ford pick-up, hunt rabbits and mice (yes, we were that good of shots!), playing football, and his sister wanting to kill us after eating almost 20 of her frozen pizzas one night (late night MTV made us hungry). These are excellent memories with Mike.

Moving away from the area, I did not keep in touch, and I hope he had a good life. Mike was one of the biggest hearted and fun guys I have known. Rest in Peace
