Brian F. Buxton, one of Australia's greatest cardiac surgeons, died in May 2022, aged 82 years. In June 2022, a memorial celebration of Brian's life was held in Melbourne, Australia, attended by 550 colleagues and friends from many walks of life—not only “medical people” but also friends involved in Brian's sailing and hiking activities. This Special Article includes an introduction from Professor Jayme Bennetts, President of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS), an abridged version of a memorial address by Professor James Tatoulis and contributions from two other long-term professional colleagues and personal friends of Buxton, Professor Jaishankar Raman and Professor Franklin Rosenfeldt, founding editor of Heart, Lung and Circulation. Buxton was an outstanding and pioneering surgeon, clinical leader, and good friend to many. The Brian F. Buxton Cardiac and Thoracic Aortic Surgery Unit in Melbourne, Australia, is now so named in honour of his outstanding achievements and as a legacy. Vale Brian F. Buxton.
