Keith Wayne Buckmaster
September 23, 1952 – January 29, 2017
Keith Wayne Buckmaster, 64, of Prince Frederick, Maryland passed away on January 29, 2017 in Burnett-Calvert Hospice House, Prince Frederick, Maryland. He was born on September 23, 1952 in Prince Frederick, MD to the late Thelma Sophia and Samuel Harrison Buckmaster, Sr. He is preceded in death by siblings Evelyn E. Holland, Ellen L. Wood, Sylvia D. Gilbert and Mark C. Buckmaster.
A skilled carpenter by profession, Keith was first and foremost a devoted father, friend, and consummate jokester, whose repertoire included a wide variety of “made you looks,” such as, waving to invisible people, inquiring as to “what was on your shirt”, and even the occasional “your shoes are untied”; whatever it took to get a laugh. He enjoyed collecting and researching antiques, listening to music, spending time with family, drag racing and cooking. It was not at all unusual to find him trying new recipes from antique cookbooks while listening to The Doors. Keith was a vibrant example of dedication, contagious laughter and loving sacrifice. He will be greatly missed by many.
Keith is survived by his son William E. Buckmaster and his wife Kristin. Brother of Samuel H, Buckmaster, Jr. and his wife Sydna, Danny B. Buckmaster and his wife Rita, Kevin W. Buckmaster and his wife Naomi, Donna B. Canter and her husband Paul.
The family will receive friends at the Rausch Funeral Home, 4405 Broomes Island Road, Port Republic, MD on Saturday February 4, 2017 from 2-4 and 6-8 PM. Services are private.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Burnett-Calvert Hospice House.
