Join us this Thursday, April 25, 2024, for a LUNCH (12:00-1:30pm) meeting at The Transept (1205 Elm St, 45202), for a presentation with Rotary District 6670 Governor Douglas Buchy

Robert Douglas Buchy is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati, graduating with a BA in Economics and a Certificate in Business Administration. Following Navy Officer’s Candidate School in Newport, RI, he served in the US Navy for over 20 years, primarily as a Surface Warfare Officer. Afloat assignments included the USS Ouellett (FF-1077) as the Boilers Officer and later as the Gunnery Officer; the USS Constellation (CV-64) as the Assistant Weapons Officer; the USS Gary (FFG-51) as the Chief Engineer and the USS Exploit (MSO-440) as the Executive Officer. He also had multiple shore duty assignments. He is a Gulf War I (Desert Storm) Veteran, spending much of the war off the coast of Kuwait. While in the Navy, he received a Master’s of Science in Software Engineering from National University, San Diego. During his Navy career, he also served for four years as an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at Paul D. Camp Community College, Suffolk, VA. He retired from the United States Navy in August 2002, as a Lieutenant Commander, and he is a life member of the VFW. He works for KBR, Inc, a large 38,000-person multinational corporation and provides defense contracting support to the USAF. Being in the Navy afforded him the opportunity to visit over 40 foreign countries around the world, and thus becoming a Rotarian was a natural outgrowth from his travels.

His Rotary experience began as a member of the Rotary Club of Great Bridge, Chesapeake, VA in 1994. After the Navy transferred him to a joint billet at Wright Patterson AFB, OH, he became a member of the Rotary Club of Dayton in 2002. His father, Robert L. Buchy (deceased), was a member of the Dayton Rotary Club (1982 to 2015) and was a Major Donor. In 2007, he transferred membership to the Rotary Club of Springboro, where he has been President, Foundation Chair, and Treasurer. After his presidency, he immediately got involved in District 6670 and served as Assistant Governor, District Trainer and various committee assignments. One of the most rewarding positions was serving at All-Ohio PETS, first as a Facilitator and for a 5-year stint as the Facilitator Trainer. He is a Multiple Paul Harris Fellow and Society Member. 

He is married to Elizabeth Ann Signorelli, has two grown and married children, and three grandchildren.
