James “Jim” Duncan Buie, Jr., 67, of Burnt Fort, passed away at his residence on Saturday, August 6, 2016.
Born October 21, 1948 in Woodbine, GA, he was the son of the late James Duncan Buie, Sr., and the late Anna Belle Kelly Buie. His brother John Kelly Buie also preceded him in death.
Jim was a graduate of Camden High in Woodbine and played for the Camden County Hurricanes, as well as playing college football. He was also a graduate of Mercer University where he received his PhD in Pharmacy, and did his internship in Atlanta, GA. Following his graduation he worked for Barnes Pharmacy in Baxley, then on to pursue his dream of opening his own Pharmacy in his hometown of Woodbine. After his retirement of over 10 years, he continued to work for several local Pharmacies in the area, until his ultimate retirement to follow in his fathers footsteps in land management and tree farming.
Jim enjoyed fishing and hunting, and most of all the love of spoiling all of his grandchildren. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Woodbine.
Survivors include his three children, Christopher Thompson Buie (Janet), and James “Trey” Buie, III (Beth) all of Burnt Fort, and Glenn Butler Buie (Kim) of Spokane Valley, WA; seven grandchildren, Kelly Buie Henderson, Kaitlyn Andrews, Kali Andrews, Lily Buie, Ella Buie, Easton Buie, and Hudsyn Buie.
