The legendary musician of tropical rock, who passed away on September 1 at the age of 76, was remembered by Cameron on Instagram on Saturday.
Cameron, who was adopted by Buffett and his wife Jane Slagsvol when he was born in 1994, wrote an emotional essay about his “amazing relationship” with his father and his desire to uphold the singer’s tradition of carefree island living.
In the caption of a picture of the father-son trio and their dog lounging on the beach at dusk, Buffett wrote that his dad had the greatest, most fulfilled life anybody could have.
He added that they had a wonderful relationship, and he misses him so much.
Cameron also spoke openly about the lessons he picked up from his musician/mogul father. He added that his dad had a marvelous talent of being able to see the positive in everything, and he will try to do the same, for him.
The singer of “Margaritaville” left behind his wife, Savannah, Sarah Delaney, and Cameron when he passed away earlier this month from Merkel cell cancer.
Slagsvol paid homage to the “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere” singer, as have a number of celebrities, including Andy Cohen, Elton John, and others.
His devoted Parrothead followers also honored him with a march across the Florida Keys, where he began his career and spent many years living.
On Saturday, the singer-songwriter’s wife of 45 years sent a stirring message. Growing older is not for sissies, as Jimmy observed a few months ago. Buffett posted a picture of the pair on her website and social media. Jimmy and she have faced unfathomably difficult challenges over the last several years, and they are absolutely not sissies.
Through every challenging time, one thing they both understood and witnessed was the feeling of being buoyed up by all the people in their lives, she said. They were encircled by affection wherever they went—in stadiums, at events, even in hospitals. She has so many people to thank for the extraordinary generosity they showed.
She said that since those early days and over the decades, Jimmy’s supporters have formed a large, raucous family. She is grateful for building the happiest community on earth. One’s spirit inspired Jimmy to grin at one when he was on stage. That’s why, in her opinion, he enjoyed performing so much. He was quite appreciative of the neighborhood that was created for him.
Doctors, coworkers, and friends were thanked, and Slagsvol said, Jimmy was love. Every cell in his body was filled with joy. He smiled all the time, even when he was deeply ill. And his sense of humor never wavered. Jimmy was always the optimist, always twinkling, always making us laugh. To my family. I cannot begin to express what you mean to me and Jimmy. I cherish you, I love you, and I am unfathomably grateful to you every day. You are my heart.”
Her eulogy came to a close with a mention of his song “Bubbles Up.” “Just know that you are loved, there is light above, and the joy is always enough,” she said in her conclusion. Bubbles up.’ Jimmy knew he was loved. Right until the end, he looked for the light. Thank you for giving joy to him and to me.”
