To all the McKechnie family I am truly sorry for your loss. I really did not know Buzz that good but every time I seen him he was smiling. My prayers go out to the McKechnie family at this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Families during this difficult time. I knew Francis when he played hockey here in Wawa, Ontario Canada. He always saluted when he scored a goal....Going to miss his precious smile, many, many memories to live on....May you Rest In Peace.

Peggy, Robert and family, I have no words to express the sorrow I feel at the loss of Francis. I remember fondly his time here in Wawa with the Wawa Travellers. I can still see his beaming smile coming in my back door. Although we lost touch over the years he was never forgotten. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and may your memories ease your sorrow.
