Vale John Buckingham

johnboy 30 March 2011 10

The ABC has the sad news that one of Canberra’s most respected surgeons, John Buckingham, has died of pancreatic cancer at just 63 years of age.

A great loss to the community by all accounts.

UPDATE: Chief Minister Stanhope’s tribute is now online.

Vale. I hope I see the day when real heroes like Dr Buckingham get the recognition that sporting buffoons get.

Dr Buckingham was a lovely man. He was so caring to my late mother, keeping us in the loop with her progress etc that it was above and beyond what he had to do. I will never forget how much he cared..

He will be greatly missed by my family and my condolences to his family. RIP John Buckingham

I could not speak highly enough about this man. A truly great and positive person who helped my family through some tough times.

Did some surgery on me a few years back. A caring gentleman, so unlike some of his money hungry and time poor compadres. Should be more like you John. RIP
