William Franklin Buxton was born in Detroit Michigan on June 15, 1915 to James Franklin and Annie (McKenney) Buxton. Williams's first job around age 14 was as a messenger for the Detroit Telegraph Company. He was drafted (draft #2) for WWII and served overseas: where he was a part of Gen. Pattons 3rd Army. Thru his sister Grace he met his future wife Virginia Lee Garrison. They were married on Nov. 14, 1949 in a quite ceremony in Plymouth Michigan. To this union they produced 5 children in 8 years. Mr Buxton was a supervisor for American Metal Products. The term "happy go lucky" could have been coined for William "Bill" Buxton. At age 50 he developed kidney troubles and was hospitalized for months: as a result he died from a blood clot to his lungs. He is survived by his widow Virginia: a son and 4 daughters running in ages from 12 to 4: an older sister Grace and younger brother James.
