Our beloved dad, Dr. Daniel Vernon Buffington, passed away of a known illness in his home on January 23, 2020. He leaves behind his sweet wife of 15 years (my stepmom) Jackie;sister, Sherry; children, Ian( Michele), Megan, Sean (Debi), and Kate (Cory); precious grand children, Cody, Caroline, Unity, Logan, Kellen, and Cora; nieces, Kelly( Shannon), Emily, and Susan; nephews, Scot (Julia), Tim, Jordan, Jeff, and Ross; great nieces, Emily, Willow, and Marley; great nephews Max and Logan; and countless friends, colleagues and patients in whose life he has made a large impact. We have made preparations for dad to be cremated @ Riddle funeral Home. The family will have a private service. In Lieu of flowers, the family requests and offers an opportunity for those who would like to provide a tangible means of support and sympathy. There has been a gofundme account set up for this purpose under dad's name gf.me/u/xf6uy6 These funds will be presented to his widow Jackie to help lift her daily burdens as she grieves this tremendous loss of her husband. I am also including my mailing address to send cards, condolences, and sympathies. I would love to gather all of your Dr Dan stories & photos for my siblings. Every one that knew him knew that he was a big personality and what you saw is what you got. Let’s keep his memories strong. Megan Buffington P.O. Box 4094 Canton Ga 30114 Daniel graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in the early 70's. He then moved to Georgia and opened a practice in Ellijay, GA. In the early 80's he moved to Belize and opened two offices there where he took care of the Mennonite community and developed a cottage industry for the Mayan community. Here they developed jewelry and artwork. In the early 90's he moved back to Georgia with his children. He then went to work at Life University doing research for Dr. Sid Williams where he developed Locked Stress Release techniques. Later, he moved to Mississippi where he opened another practice. Due to an unfortunate house fire he moved back to Georgia and began teaching seminars in his Locked Stress Release techniques. He taught these seminars to other health care providers, not just chiropractors. He then met his soon-to-be wife Jackie and the two of them traveled to the Baja peninsula of Mexico where the they took care of the indigenous people of the region, traveling throughout Mexico and Central America. Dr. Buffington and Jackie then moved to Ohio where he saw the occasional patient, taught seminars and transitioned into retirement. Dr. Buffington's professional legacy is defined by his years of service to those who might not otherwise receive chiropractic care, as well as his impact on the importance of Postural Balance.
