Hiram Buckley Obituary

Hiram Gabriel Buckley, 72, passed away Monday, February 19, 2024 at his home in Camp Verde, Arizona. He was born on May 16, 1951 to John and Virginia Buckley in Evanston, IL. He married Patricia Ann Briggs on February 26, 1977 in Scottsdale, AZ. Hiram, Butch to those close to him, enjoyed being outdoors, working with his plants, listening to music, visits to Laughlin, and watching movies.

Hiram is survived by his wife, Patricia, his son John (Brianne), his daughter Jill, his granddaughter Kamryn, his grandsons Tyson, Wade, and Weston, his sister, Susan Martini, and his brother, John (Sue); as well as nieces and nephews, other relatives, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his grandparents, and his mother-in-law.

Hiram moved to Arizona as a child and spent his youth growing up among the orchards of Scottsdale, AZ. He was among one of the last classes to graduate from Scottsdale High School (1969) and attended Northern Arizona University, where he earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and was an active member of Sigma Pi.

Hiram lived his life to the fullest, whether it be sitting next to the pool listening to music, visiting the beach in Carlsbad, CA, or taking trips to Laughlin with his wife, he was always the life of the party. You could always count on a funny prank or joke from Hiram.

His love for knowledge and learning was shared with his students as a teacher, coach and guidance counselor at Joseph City High School (1984-1991) and Camp Verde High School (1991-2015) for the entire 30 years.

He will be eternally missed by all who loved him.

In lieu of flowers, the family would love for donations to be made to Camp Verde High School athletics to support local athletes.
