Lanny “Man” Leon Buchanan

 Lanny “Man” Leon Buchanan departed this life on Wednesday April 7th, 2021 at Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro, TN. He was born on August 18th, 1966 in Shelbyville, TN, to the late Joseph Earl Buchanan and Renaecker Jean Britton Arnold.

As a member of the A & B Gospel Soul Singers and The New Traveling Stars, he sang about his love and relationship for Jesus. He was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan. And every softball season, you could catch him at Dave King Park as a fair and beloved umpire.
