Bradley “Brad” E. Buckingham, 73, of Ashland, NE, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 3, 2024 at Lakeside Hospital in Omaha, NE with his family by his side.  He was born December 29, 1950 in Lincoln, NE to Benjamin and Mildred (Hraban) Buckingham.  On March 17, 1984, Brad married Joyce in Colorado.  Brad worked for 42 years at SAPP Bros.  He worked as a general manager before he retired on March 1, 2016.

    Joyce and family, I am saddened to hear our dear friend Brad Buckingham has passed away. Brad was not only a great customer, but an even better friend. DAS and myself learned a great deal from Brad in the Travel Center Industry. Joyce, I appreciate and cherish the opportunity to have known you both and to have called you both dear friends for over 30 years. Your DAS family is thinking of you all and praying for you all!
