Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Flag at Half-Mast to Honor Singer
Margaritaville is mourning the death of Jimmy Buffett, and one of the ways is the symbolic flag-lowering.
The Margaritaville in Palm Springs, and presumably elsewhere, lowered its flag to half-mast in honor of the legendary singer/songwriter.
Jimmy was known as the Mayor of Margaritaville, so in a way it’s an official title that makes flag-lowering appropriate.
As we reported, Jimmy died late Friday night. We’re told he was diagnosed with skin cancer 4 years ago and it turned into lymphoma.
He was receiving hospice care since Monday. On Friday night, we’re told the house was filled with people, just hours before his death. Jimmy was in an upstairs bedroom, and he passed peacefully.
And, as we reported, Sir Paul McCartney went to the South Hampton home a week ago to sing for Jimmy and his family.
A number of people posted tributes, including Elton John, Kenny Chesney and President Biden.
Jimmy was 76.
