Nov 17, 2020

Leo George “Bucky” Maher, Jr., 80, passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side at his home in Wareham on November 15, 2020.  

Born in Waterbury, CT, on April 6, 1940, he was the son of the late Leo George Maher, Sr. and Theresa (DeBisschop) Maher.

Bucky was an avid outdoorsman who would always find time to share with his family.  He provided for them, working what only seemed a few days a week so he could break us all free for long weekends of camping, fishing or hunting. He was proud of teaching his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren the way “he thought” everything should be. The family found solace in his steadfast support and love that he showed in his own way.  

Bucky was a veteran, and proud of his service in the US Navy being stationed on the USS Kittyhawk during the Vietnam War.

He leaves his wife, Virginia Dorothy “Ginny” (Maloney) Maher after 59 years of marriage; his 3 children; Leo Maher III of Chatham, David Maher of Plymouth, and Linda Steek of Wareham;  his sister, Theresa Ann (Maher) D’Angelo of Kittery Point, ME; and his brother, John “Jack” Maher of Salem.  Bucky “Pa” adored his 8 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.  He was the brother of the late Arlene Baker.

Funeral services will be private.

Donations in his memory may be made to the American Heart Assoc., 300 5th Avenue, Suite 6, Waltham, MA 02451-8750.
