Clifford Duane “Bucky” Meier, age 87, peacefully passed away early Saturday, July 21, 2018, at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg. He was born in rural Darlington, on March 12, 1931, to William and Josephine (Wand) Meier. He proudly served his country as a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, stationed in Hawaii during the Korean War.
After returning home, Bucky married Jeanie Armstrong, on June 4, 1955, in Darlington. Bucky was a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church. His career in carpentry evolved into the long successful business of Meier Building Company, which specialized in fire, wind and water restoration from the ice storm of ‘76 to the Barneveld tornado and beyond. Bucky Badger Saturdays, fishing the Wisconsin River and hunting the Kickapoo Hills were a few of the things he thrived at in his active years. His family meant everything in his world, being blessed with two wonderful grandchildren.
Bucky is survived by his wife, Jeanie; children, Kim Meier (Paul Iverson), Mark Meier and Deborah (Greg) Faust; grandchildren, Kayla (Eugene) Lisitsa and Ryan (Carolyn) Faust; sisters, Margaret Manson, Lois Lunde, Joyce Roosli and Carol Bayer; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and beloved pets, Fifi, Max and Ginger.
