Byron, GA – James Ray “Buster” Small, 86, passed away at his home on Friday, August 23, 2019. Services celebrating his life will be held privately by the family.
Buster was born in Noblesville, IL on February 2, 1933 to the late Charles and Mable (Miller) Small. He proudly and honorably served his country in the United States Air Force.
