In Loving Memory

David Arnold Buffington

June 16, 1984 – November 21, 2020

II Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.  Let nothing move you.  Always give yourselves fully to the work of the LORD, because you know that your labor in the LORD is not in vain.

David Arnold Buffington, born June 16, 1984 in Texas City, Texas, is the "special" (as described by almost everyone who knew him) child of Elijah "Lil Joe" Buffington and Brenda Buffington.  In 2003, David graduated from Life Christian Academy where he said, "I will be respected for who I am and why God made me" and "meet good Christian students."  He was a member of Second Baptist Church, and he spent the last few months of his earthly life preaching the Gospel of CHRIST in an unassuming but impactful manner.  He attended Pensacola Christian College after high school graduation.  David later became a certified HVAC technician and CDL operator.  David's employers included Sam's Club, American Airlines, and National Gas Company. Because GOD gave David the talent of navigation, we rejoice in knowing he is currently navigating in heaven.

However, his greatest talents and gifts are humility, selflessness, meekness and being a peacemaker. "David is a very special person" and a gift from heaven.  How blessed we are that GOD granted David's relatives, friends, associates, and strangers thirty-six years of witnessing the true meaning of his talents, which are exemplified in how the HOLY SPIRIT lives through him.  For he is a true example of how we all should embody our HEAVENLY FATHER by living a life void of confusion and grounded in humility.

His life and memories will continue to be cherished by his parents Elijah and Brenda Buffington of Friendswood, Texas; his brothers, Jason Joseph Buffington (Julie) of Alvin, Texas; Alex Andrew Buffington of Nashville, Tennessee; his sister, Angie Clarice Gates (Sean) of Montgomery, Texas; his paternal grandparents Elijah Buffington, Jr. (Ann) of Chicago, Illinois; a number of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.  He is preceded in death by his uncle, Arnold Roy Buffington; great-grandfather and mother, Alex and Angie Bell Matthews; great aunt, Inez Burns; paternal grandmother Alexenia "Marion" Buffington; maternal grandmother Clara Mae Wells; and aunt, Judy Ann Wells Harris.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, November 28, 2020 at 10:00A.M. at Jeter Memorial Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Forest Park East Cemetery.

Condolences may be sent to the Buffington family in care of Jeter Memorial Funeral Home at www.jeterfuneralhome.com.
