Mark Buckley (Born: 1972. Died: 1998) Age: 26
Buckley was Luanne's dim-witted and selfish boyfriend from Season 1 to Season 3. He worked at Megalomart as a Hardware Department salesman, greeter, and finally manager of the Propane Department. Buckley was killed in an explosion brought about by his own incompetence ("Propane Boom"). Buckley would stock the propane by dragging the canisters out by the valves, which eventually caused one to come loose and cause a leak. Hank didn't like him very much. Buckley's poor skill and lack of knowledge of both safety and as a salesman in the Hardware Department often aggravated Hank at Megalomart. Buckley enjoyed having a position of authority over Hank and would often speak down to him, forcing Hank to wear a trainee badge, despite Buckley being the one to know nothing about the position he had.
After his death, Buckley reappeared as an angel to Luanne ("Wings of the Dope"), throwing Rainey Street into an angel-craze. As a reconciliation with Luanne, he guided her into college with a note from Jesus. After one final goodbye, he jumped from his beloved trampoline (which he named "Number One"). After Luanne's return to her uncle's home, he returned to the trampoline from the sky saying "Hey, new record, cool!" and proceeded to walk down the alley with a halo over his head.
It is interesting to note that although his character perished in "Propane Boom", he is still seen riding his motorcycle into the alley to pick up Luanne in the title sequence until the show's cancellation.
