Chris Buxton

    Our loving father, son, brother, and grandpa, James Chris Buxton, age 58, of Roosevelt, passed away unexpectedly on December 31, 2018.
    He was born July 24, 1960, in Washington, DC, to Terry Mackley and Diane Christensen Buxton.
    Chris was an accomplished craftsmen and specialist in hardwood flooring, which he  installed in many homes throughout the Basin. He loved music and enjoyed playing his guitar, especially with family and friends. He also liked to ride horses and was a baseball enthusiast, traveling to many MLB stadiums. He loved his kids and grandkids and was a light to all who knew him – he had the biggest heart.
