<p><em>Robert Warren &ldquo;Bob&rdquo; Buckner</em> was born in the Bronx, NY, the son of Lawrence and Elizabeth Buckner. He was the eldest of three brothers whose mother was widowed early in her life. At an early age he became a devoted fan of the Army Football Team, traveling to West Point to attend games during the Doc Blanchard, Glen Davis era. He was able to name every player on those successful teams. From this early experience, attendance at West Point was his goal. <br />He attended New York City public schools and graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School in 1952, where he was the quarterback of their football team. His mother wrote endless letters to gain his appointment to West Point. After attending Hunter College for one year, he entered the West Point Class of 1957.<br />At West Point he was a member of the corps squad football, basketball and baseball teams. He was a walking sports encyclopedia and followed teams of all levels. At one point his mother gave him a television set to enable his passion to watch sports. Since TV was not allowed in the barracks, he and his roommates climbed out the window of their regimental tactical officer&rsquo;s office and onto the roof of the barracks to place an antenna above their room in the 55th Division. Eventually their company tactical officer discovered the set in the storage room and confiscated it. Bob was popular among his companymates, and his leadership capabilities were recognized by his promotion to corporal in his Second Class year. During his free time, you could always find Bob in the gym with a basketball in his hand. During summer leave in 1956, he and his roommates traveled space available military aircraft to Europe, visiting Germany, Geneva, Paris and Copenhagen. After the Pittsburgh football game that year, Bob and his roommates were invited to dinner at the Pittsburgh Athletic Club by a gentleman on the United Nations staff in Geneva, and they later had dinner with him again, in Switzerland. Not realizing how strict the Swiss were, they found their boarding house locked up tight when they returned that evening. Their only choice was to climb the wall and enter their third-floor room through the window.<br />While at West Point Bob met the love of his life, JoAnn Paradiso. They were married after he graduated in June 1957.<br />After serving in the Air Force, he returned to New York and attended Columbia University, earning a degree in physical education. He then returned to DeWitt Clinton as a faculty member for the next 30 years in its Physical Education Department. According to Bob Finklestein, who was a colleague and later the athletic director there, Bob was the most wonderful teacher he had ever seen, always caring for new colleagues and helping them to get onboard.<br />In his book The Castle on the Parkway, James Garvey wrote: &ldquo;In September 1965 physical education teacher Bob Buckner took over as coach of Clinton&rsquo;s basketball team, replacing coach Hank Jacobsohn. As a Clinton senior, Buckner had been the quarterback on the football team coached by the same Hank Jacobsohn. A 1957 graduate of West Point, Buckner knew the importance of respect and discipline in teamwork. He gave his players respect and from them he demanded discipline. Nate &lsquo;Tiny&rsquo; Archibald (called Nat at Clinton and a member of Buckner&rsquo;s first team) has often publicly praised his coach for whipping him into shape and giving him direction. In Buckner&rsquo;s first year as coach Clinton went undefeated and won the PSAL championship. The following year the later rounds of the PSAL playoffs were cancelled when teams could not agree on where the games should be played, much to the disappointment of Buckner and his 13-1 Governors. In 1968 Clinton went on to the PSAL championship game only to lose to Boy&rsquo;s High. During his coaching tenure from 1965 to 1968, Buckner&rsquo;s teams won 52 of 56 games. Among his players were Nate Archibald, Mike Switzer, and Walter Robertson&mdash;all college all stars in their own right who would be drafted by NBA and ABA professional teams.&rdquo;<br />Although he did not make the team until Bob took over his senior year and recognized his talent, Archibald was inducted into the national Basketball Hall of Fame after 14 years in the NBA. During his time at Clinton, Bob also served as assistant football coach. He later spent time coaching basketball at Manhattan College.<br />Bob and JoAnn had four children: Richard, Barbara, Ted and Robert, whom they raised in Hastings-on-Hudson outside of New York City. Later he coached female sports at Hastings High School, where his daughter Barbara was a member of the basketball team.<br />Bob&rsquo;s love of West Point influenced both of his younger brothers to attend West Point, Richard, Class of 1961; and Roy, Class of 1964. Both were first team All-Americans on the Army Lacrosse Team. When Roy was entering the Academy, an article appeared in a New York newspaper with the phrase, &ldquo;the Bronx Buckners of West Point.&rdquo; The article described how the family, influenced by Bob and supported by their mother, paved the way for their West Point educations.<br />In retirement, Bob and his family enjoyed summers in the mountains of Blowing Rock, NC and winters in Vero Beach, FL. Bob passed away on June 13, 2017 after a prolonged bout with severe symptoms of pneumonia. He was predeceased by his wife of 58 years, JoAnn, and his eldest son, Richard.<br /><em>&mdash; Buckner Family and Justin LaPorte &rsquo;57</em></p>
