Walker "Buzz" Duff Ragland, 71, of Benton, and formally of Wabbaseka, made his last wildly inappropriate and probably sarcastic comment May 17, 2022. He was born on December 4, 1950, to Lillian and Frank Ragland. Buzz was raised in the Wabbaseka community at Ragland Farms where he wreaked most of his havocs but enjoyed every moment of it. He was preceded in death by his father and mother and one sister, Jane Grigg. Buzz leaves behind to cherish his memory, two daughters, Jennifer Owens and Leah Atherley (Chad). In addition, one sister, Frances Ragland Moore, three grandsons, Jacob (Jake), Ethan (Opie) and Jackson (Happy Jack), and one granddaughter, Jillian (Rabbit) and a host of family and beloved friends. Although a less than average life span, Buzz did not live an average life. He traveled where he wanted to travel, made inappropriate comments at every chance, learned what he wanted to learn, fixed what he wanted to fix and loved who he wanted to love. The family would like to thank Divine Home Health Care, LLC for their attentive care. Karen, Sara, Sandy, Iris, Jasmine, Yury and Jordan, you all were a delight and we will never forget how well you took care of our father. The family will have a celebration of life at the home of Leah and Chad Atherley on Saturday, May 21, from 2 p.m. until the last drop of Johnny Walker is gone. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. The home is located at 2900 Coldwater Drive, Benton, Arkansas, 72019. Online guest book at:
