It is with great sadness I mourn the passing of my father James Buckner. It is with great joy I remember him. He was a kind and gentle man who spent his life serving the Lord in song. Years ago I wrote a song dedicated to him. In his memory I am posting the song with some of my favorite pictures of him and I together.
We all have lost a wonderful family man, singer and Christian friend in Jim Buckner. Jim passed away Friday February 20, 2015 around 5:00 pm. Jim sang with several groups over the span of 65 years. He also hosted radio programs on WTOF 98.1, WHKW, and others along the way. A true gospel music historian will be sadly missed in this life. We know we will see him again. Please pray for his wife Helena. This is a great loss to the family. Jim was a blessing and a great encouragement to me throughout the 20 years I knew him as a friend!
