Tribute Message to Jack Buckalew from President Bill Signorelli
Jackie R. Buckalew 1932 – 2016
All of us at Security America will miss our friend and our mentor Jack Buckalew. He had a wonderful career and family life. Mr. Buckalew served his country in the Navy during the Korean War, his city at Chief of the Charleston Police Dept., and his state as a member and Superintendent of the West Virginia State Police, as well as a State Senator. Jack was a member of the SACS consulting team for us in the late 1990’s, and remained in touch ask we ask for his guidance. He was the essence of true professionalism.
I first befriended Col. Buckalew when he was the Commandant of the WV State Police Academy when I worked as the WV Dept. of Corrections assistant training director as the academy in 1977. We remained friends and professional associates over the years. Jack was of the utmost integrity, and carried that with him in all that he did. He has joined his wonderful wife, Eula, in heaven. Our heart and prayers go out to Jack’s family and love ones from all of us in the Security America family.
