Text size

Brett Buchanan, 58, of Danville, Ill., passed away May 21, 2017, due to complications involving his lifelong battle with adolescent diabetes.
Brett was born May 23, 1958, in Decatur, Ill., the son of Austin and Doris Buchanan, both of whom precede him. In heaven, Brett also will be reunited with his adoring stepfather, Thomas W Chapman.
Brett is survived by many loving relatives, including his two beautiful daughters, Jill and Samantha Buchanan, both of former wife and good friend, Carey Crose. Brett also will be missed by his loving sisters and brother, Kimberly Pacilio (wife of James Pacilio), Christine Vishnesky (wife of Paul Vishnesky), Anne Bell (wife of Philip Bell) and Thomas Noble Chapman. Additionally, his five nieces, Sunny, Jamie, Mikayla, Tara and Julia.
Brett graduated from Danville High School in 1976 and attended the University of Illinois. Brett was employed by Courtesy Motors for over 30 years, a true testament of his love for mechanics and electronics.
Brett was a brilliant mind and never had a steak or Coca-Cola he did not enjoy. Brett will be missed dearly.
Services will be at 10 a.m. June 21, 2017, in Sunset Memorial Park's Chapel.
