Bill Buchanan Obituary, Death Cause – I am writing this with a heavy heart to inform you of the passing of Bill Buchanan, one of the dearest friends I have ever known. Bill was one of the most genuinely decent and charitable guys who ever lived in our earth. Heaven has recently gained an angel who will not need any kind of training in the future. Bill Buchanan had a memory like an iron trap, and he was able to remember everything he had ever read. This became abundantly clear when he chose to enroll in a few accounting classes and subsequently take the Certified Public Accountant test. Even though he did not have a degree in accounting, he was nonetheless able to pass all of the sections of the CPA test on the first attempt and even got an award for his outstanding marks.
This did not come as a surprise to me at all. Bill was a skilled musician, an active athlete, and a devout member of the clergy. He was a man of the cloth. After graduating from college with a degree in philosophy, Bill decided to pursue a career in the Methodist ministry. I first met Bill in 1971, and we continued to perform music together throughout our high school years. After graduating from high school, Bill and I decided to attend the University of Mississippi together as first-year students and housemates.
The excellent times that we had when we were in college were spectacular. After graduating from Ole Miss, Bill, Billy Ellison, and I decided to start the bluegrass band that would become the Vernon Brothers. After just a few length of time had passed after Bill’s retirement, he was informed of the fact that he suffered from an unidentified lung condition that was both terminal and incurable in its nature. Although he had hoped to live for a few more years, he only had a few months left to live. Please keep Bill Buchanan and his family in your thoughts and prayers. On Friday, June 2nd, 2023, funeral services will be held in Conway, Arkansas. Details will be presented later.
