Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

It is with deep sad­ness that we parted with our ‘dar­ling Bucky’ on May 22, 2017, at Bad­deck Hospi­tal, when he went to be with his Lord and Sav­ior.

Bucky be­gan his ca­reer as a for­est ranger af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Mar­itime Ranger School in New Brunswick. He later worked with the Depart­ment of High­ways for many years as a sur­veyor. He was a val­ued mem­ber of St. An­drews Pres­by­te­rian Church in North River where he served as el­der and choir mem­ber. He was a gifted Gaelic speaker/ teacher and was known for his beau­ti­ful Gaelic so­los. He was also well known as a great fid­dle player and was in high de­mand at dances and con­certs. He also served on the board of the Gaelic Col­lege. Bucky was a gen­tle soul who was loved and ad­mired by ev­ery­one who knew him.

Bucky was pre­de­ceased by his par­ents, Dan and An­nie (Ma­cLeod) Carmichael; broth­ers, Kenny (Mamie) Carmichael and Hec­tor Carmichael; sis­ters, Mar­cella (Al­bert) Smith, An­nie (Nor­man) MacIn­nis and Maude (Neil) MacLean, and nieces Alice Jan­son and Judy Mor­ri­son.

He is sur­vived by his lov­ing wife of 50 years, Jessie (Allen) Carmichael; son, Ste­wart (Joanne), and grand­son, Matthew, as well as many nieces and neph­ews.
