Obituary

Lawrence Fogler Buckland
"Larry, " age 89, died peacefully at home on Bell Hill Farm in Stark, NH on April 4, 2019. Husband of Janet Gardiner Buckland and father of Andrew R. Buckland, Bruce H. Buckland, Katherine Buckland Merrow, Thomas W. Buckland and Heidi Buckland Wada.

He was a lifelong entrepreneur, an engineer with a broad career and many interests. Larry sailed on the MIT Sailing Team and was a member of Theta Delta Chi, Class of ’52; he joined the US Air Force as a Lieutenant at the Rome Air Development Center. In the private sector at Itek, he applied computer techniques to photo intelligence for the U2 and the Corona Satellite Programs. In 1962, he founded Inforonics, Inc. where he pioneered new technology to search and manage text, laying the groundwork for the online systems we use today. In retirement he remained an entrepreneur and continued his life-long love of learning, a love he shared and passed on to his whole family.

His family camp on Lake George was an anchor for him; whether he was building a dock, swapping stories about science experiments gone wrong, or making plans around the dinner table, he loved seeing his family close and working together. He was direct, and generous with everyone he met—his pride in his family’s accomplishments was only surpassed by his interest in their work and exploits. He loved his family, and in later years truly embraced his community and neighbors in Stark. He was particularly proud of a jacket that was given to him by local firefighters to thank him for his work to provide them with a new fire engine and safety equipment.

Larry's spirit will live on in his beloved wife Janet, his sister Joan, and all of his children, stepchildren, grandchildren, and their families, all of whom he loved dearly.

Visiting hours Fri. April 12th from 5-8pm at the Acton Funeral Home, 470 Massachusetts Ave, (Rte 111) Acton. Graveside services with US Air Force honors Sat. April 13th at 10am in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Central St, West Acton. A memorial service will follow at 11am in the Acton Congregational Church, 12 Concord Road (Off Rte 27) Acton Ctr. All are welcome at all the services. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations to be made to the Stark Village School; C/O SAU 58; 15 Prebble St.; Groveton, NH 03582 or to the Stark Volunteer Fire Department; 1276 Stark Highway; Stark, NH 03582.

Larry hired me to work as a software engineer at Inforonics over 20 years ago. I felt that the interviews went really well that day, and Larry said he wanted to take me out to lunch. We went to a little French restaurant not too far from work and had a great meal and conversation. At the end of lunch, he leaned over and put a hand on my arm and said, "I heard feedback from some on the interview team and so far so good. But..." He paused long enough that I got a little worried, and then he added, "I own the company, so you have nothing to worry about." We developed a friendship from that day onward, and I regret not keeping in touch with Larry after I had left Inforonics years later. All my love and condolences to the Buckland and Hurley families.
