Honoring Conrad Buckley: A Golf Event for a Good Cause
On May 26th, in the city of Clermont, Florida, we gathered to pay tribute to our dear friend and former colleague, Conrad Buckley, who had a profound passion for golf. This exceptional event allowed us to celebrate Conrad's life while supporting a noble cause.
Father, Law Professional, and Friend
Officer Conrad Buckley was more than just a dedicated law enforcement professional – he was a devoted husband, a loving father, and a fan of various sports teams. He had an infectious energy that drew people towards him, always exuding life and laughter.
Conrad's compassion and respect for others, both on and off the job, left a lasting impact on the community.
Conrad's colleagues knew him as genuine and outgoing, always ready with a smile and a genuine interest in others' well-being. Even in his own struggles, he never lost sight of the challenges faced by frontline workers battling COVID-19, and his concern for his squad was unwavering.
Conrad's untimely passing has left a void that will be deeply felt by everyone fortunate enough to have known him.
