Thomas Bucy Obituary

Thomas Page Bucy, age 84 of Pointe au Pic Quebec, Canada, passed away on Monday, September 25, 2023. He was one of five Bucy children born to Lester and Ruth (Munsee) Bucy.

Tom graduated from Grand Haven High School, Class of 1958, where he was active in sports. During his high school years, Tom worked at the Big Store to supplement his family’s income. He was awarded a Scholarship to the University of Michigan, and swam for the U of M Swim Team under Coach Gus Stager. After his collegiate swimming career, Tom swam professionally in Canada and was just short of making the 1964 Summer Olympics. 

Tom proudly served our country in the United States Army and was a member of the Army’s Pentathlon team. He was the Quintessential Renaissance Man of his time, and was a competitive athlete and sailor, and worked as a tough public defender for the Los Angeles, CA Court System. 

Tom was an attorney in private practice, a general contractor, book author, bed and breakfast proprietor, and an avid reader. He was also a wonderful husband, father, brother, mentor, and role model to many, teaching others how to think systematically, take on new challenges, analyze situations, probe for deeper meaning, and strive for a higher purpose, not settling for a superficial life.

Tom is survived by his wife, Louise; his two sons, Erik Bucy, Ph.D., and Geoffrey Bucy, General Contractor; one grandson; two brothers, Bill Bucy and Charles (Bucy) Brandon; two sisters, Lisa Golstein and Carolyn Hentchel; and many loving nieces and nephews.
