Hitting baseballs that he pitched to us endlessly on lazy summer afternoons. Teaching us how to play “swish” or “31” on Sundays after church. Helping us craft our pool game in the basement of the Wilson homestead. These were just a few memories of Frank Buksa that were a part of my childhood that I now recognize as a privilege to have experienced.
Growing up as one of eight children, our neighbors were our daycare and their house was our playground. We lived on a street where nobody was wealthy. Everyone’s doors were always open. Something was always cooking on the stove. I always had a home. I was always welcomed with open arms in the Wilson home and was treated like one of t
...he family.
In the Wilson household, when Frank Buksa visited, there were endless stories, jokes, games, fun and laughter. They were the happiest of times. My childhood was free of social media, tablets, and mobile devices. I am happy and blessed that I can can reflect on a childhood filled with fun and laughter. Frank Buksa and the Wilson family were an important part of my happiness growing up, and I am forever grateful.
To Carol, Frank, Cheri and the whole family - Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. May your fond memories help to ease the pain of Frank’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad and difficult time.

My condolences to the whole family.

So many memories. I can remember babysitting the kids, and Frank and Carol would come home and he would turn on the stereo and dance!

I remember the Gremlin that he drove and let me drive as well!

Frank was always so good to me, and a big part of my teen years!

I know Frank will be missed, but he has left us with so many wonderful memories! He was such a gentle soul.

Rest In Peace Frank!
We had some fun times as neighbors for twelve years! Best neighbors ever....miss those days sometimes...
I remember going fishing in chateguay with you a Carol and caught all your trout still on the stringer floating down the river. I told you finders keepers!
My boys remember your Christmas Eve money give away, they always wanted to go to your house to cash in on that.
How you loved taking our dog shep for a ride in your convertible, park the car and watch people move to the other side of the street instead of walking by the car..
It’s little things that are the precious memories !
Rest Frank life gave you a hard knock but you fought and won for many years to be w
...ith your beautiful family.
Thanks for the memories! Some day we will be neighbors again in Heaven. ✝️🙏
