Bucio died in late May while trying to rescue a missing boater who had gone overboard on the South Branch of the Chicago River. The firefighter and veteran member of the dive team was laid to rest on June 4.
He is survived by his sons Joshua, 10, and Jacob, 7. The Chicago White Sox invited them onto the field Friday night before their game against the Oakland Athletics.
