Buffett was born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, on December 25, 1946. He also spent time growing up in Mobile and Fairhope, Alabama. He was the son of US Army Corps of Engineers employees Mary Lorraine Buffett, who passed away on September 25, 2003, and James Delaney Buffett, Jr., who passed away on May 1. His two younger siblings are Lucy, born in 1953, and Laurie, born in 1948.
His grandfather, James Delaney Buffett, was a steamship captain from Newfoundland, and his father was a marine engineer and sailor, thus he was exposed to sailing as a young age. These experiences later inspired his music.
