Henry Nemo “Bucky” Chafin Jr.
Bucky passed away peacefully in his home on Tybee Island, surrounded by loved ones. The people that knew him best, knew that he had a big heart, he was generous and loving, yet could be stubborn at times. He’d give you the shirt off of his back, always willing and eager to help anyone in need. Bucky loved Tybee Island, and dedicated his life to making it the best place on earth, he was proud of his hometown, and his own little slice of heaven. He, along with several others in the community, financed and built Jaycee Park. He spent multiple years coaching little league baseball at that park, which was truly a great passion of his. He will be missed by all of those he greatly impacted, a major father figure in the lives of so many. He is now reunited with his beloved mother Grace Odom Chafin and his two sisters, Georgia Griesbach and Phyllis Andrea Chafin. The family will hold a memorial in his remembrance at a much later date.
The family asks that should any friends desire, memorial contributions may be made to The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in his honor, in lieu of flowers.
P.S. Thank you TIFD for all the lift assists over the years.Print This Obituary & Condolences
