1954 - 2022
Our loving husband, father and grandfather, Brian Charles Buxton passed away on the
afternoon of Friday, September 23, 2022 in Salt Lake City, Utah surrounded by his loving wife
and all of his children.
Brian was born June 7, 1954 in Salt Lake City, Utah to wonderful parents, Burt and Norma
Buxton. He was the youngest of four children. He attended East High School and the
University of Utah. His love of music led him to play several instruments incredibly well
including the piano and drums. Brian was a member of the LDS church and served a mission in
the southern United States where he met the love of his life, Billie Renee Lloyd. They were
married May 13, 1978 and were sealed in the Washington, D.C. temple.
Brian and Billie settled in Montgomery, Alabama to raise their four children. His 13 years living
in Alabama were the best of his life. While living in the south he developed a great affinity for
southern bbq, family trips to Panama City beach in Florida and Auburn football.
In 1989, Brian and his family relocated to Salt Lake City, Utah. He always prioritized spending
time with family and enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and Laguna Beach with his sweetheart. He also
spent countless hours cheering on his children, and then his grandchildren, in their various
sports and activities.
Brian loved his long career in the life insurance business and enjoyed working for Memorial
Mortuaries and Cemeteries. He had the best clients in the world and felt it an honor to work with each of them.
Brian is survived by his loving wife Billie, his children, Angela (Jamie) Fletcher, Christie (Pat)
Jamison, Jeff (Kate) Buxton, Kim (Keith) Shepro and 14 grandchildren who he adored. He is
also survived by his brothers Tom (Gladys) Buxton, Jon Buxton, his sister, Christina Nilson and
many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents.
