City of Lubbock Cemetery

Buddy Holly died at age 22 in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa on February 3, 1959. Fellow musicians Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson were also killed in the crash. The funeral was held in Tabernacle Baptist Church and he was buried in the City of Lubbock Cemetery on Saturday February 7, 1959. Fans have traveled from up to ten thousand miles away to view Holly's final resting place. It is customary to place a guitar pick on the headstone so that the "music lives on."
