Bobby Joe Buford

Bobby Joe Buford was born on March 12, 1927 to Turner and Marie Buford in Orange, Texas. Bobby went to be with Jesus and all his friends and family on March 22, 2007. Bobby was preceded in death by his father, "Butch" Turner Buford and his "mommy", Marie Buford; his brother, "Sonny" T.M. Buford; his "good friend", Jimmy Garner and his wife Lillian Garner. He is survived by Kay and Orval Hanson of Beaumont; their children, Mark and Heather; his sister-in-law, Ellie Buford of Italy; his friends, Kenneth Kelly, Emily and Guy Simon; their children, Guy, Derek, Carolyn and Chase; "my friend" Vick Nelson and his wife Kathy; their children, Maggie, Emma ("Little Bit") and Elijah ("Little Blue Eyed Boy"), all of Beaumont. He also will be greatly missed by his spiritual family at the Stones Crying Out Ministry and South Park Baptist Church. Bobby would like to thank the staff at his home, Spring Creek Manor. Bobby was fiercely loyal to those who loved him. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army and served our country in Korea. He received the Korean Service Medal with one Bronze Service Star, the Army OCC Medal, the Combat Infantry Badge and the U.N. Service Medal. Bobby loved his SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, and his final words were "Jesus, I'm ready to go now. I'm ready to see my family and friends. Funeral services will be conducted at 10:00 A.M. Saturday, March 24, 2007, at Forest Lawn Funeral Home with burial to follow at Magnolia Cemetery in Beaumont. A gathering of friends and family will take place on Friday, March 23, 2007, from 4:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M. at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, please visit a nursing home and perhaps you will meet a "lover and friend" like Bobby Joe Buford. He was "a good somebody". 4955 Pine St Beaumont, Texas (409)892-5912
