Cornelius “Neil” Buckley, D'Agostino Supermarkets’ director of grocery, HBA and GM, died yesterday morning after a brief illness. He was 41 years old. Buckley had joined D'Agostino’s management team five years ago.
"Neil was passionate about his work, a key contributor to D'Agostino and an extraordinary team player, beloved by D'Agostino associates at every level; he will be missed professionally and personally," noted Nicholas D'Agostino III, president and COO of Larchmont, N.Y.-based D'Agostino Supermarkets.
Before coming to D'Agostino Supermarkets, Buckley, a native New Yorker, worked at US Merchandise for 10 years. He is survived by his wife, Kathryn, and five children. A private funeral will be held in Long Island, where Buckley and his family lived.
Instead of flowers, Buckley's family has requested that donations be made to support lung
cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
