WOODBURY — Frank Robert “Buck” Judson, 80, passed away on September 14, 2022, at Danbury Hospital with his family with him.
He was born on August 20, 1942, the son of the late Franklin Harlow and Laurette Jean (Theriault) Judson. Buck, as he was known to his friends, attended local schools such as Woodbury Elementary School and Woodbury High School.
Buck worked on his family farm from his boyhood, milking cows, planting, harvesting and being able to operate all of the equipment. When Buck was 12 years old, he began working for the family business with his father, who owned a farm equipment shop. He finally retired at the age of 74 years old.
After an accident while pruning a tree, which paralyzed him, Buck’s faith never wavered. Throughout the past six years, he was a wonder and encouragement to all who knew him. He was always gentle and kind and always reminding everyone that God loved them. He was very generous in nature, known for helping anyone in need.
Buck’s belief in God was so strong that in his free time he would hand out pamphlets about God’s love. He was a deacon at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Waterbury, and he also sang in the choir.
Besides his parents, Buck is predeceased by his sister, Bonnie J. Rose and nephew, Steven.
He leaves to mourn his loss, three sisters, Gail J. Manning and her children, Matthew, Aimee (J.R.), Andrew and daughter-in-law Lyn, Nanette (Charles) Scherer and their three children, Charles, Jr. (Gail), Jane (Chris Gerwein), Peter (Elizabeth) and Tammy J. Terrell and her two children, Michael and Chellsee (Doug Jacqueman); also, Bonnie’s daughter, Lorrie, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Calling hours for Buck will be at 10 a.m. Sunday, September 18, followed by a service at 11 a.m. at Munson-Lovetere Funeral Home, 2 School St., Woodbury.
