Obituary of Carl Hailey Buckler, Sr

Carl Hailey Buckler, Sr, 73, passed away on Saturday, January 20, 2024. The husband of Doris Woodroof Buckler, Carl was born August 8, 1950, to the late Sherman and Vertna Davis Buckler in Owingsville, Kentucky. He was a retired Stallion Manager at Gainesway Farm and enjoyed all things horses. In addition to horses, he enjoyed fishing, working in the yard, watching UK Basketball, and just helping people in general. Anything to stay busy. But what he treasured most was his relationship with God and family. Carl attended the services of Lakeshore Church in New Orleans, LA every Sunday remotely and looked forward to the weekly sermons.
