I am sorry to hear of Buddy's passing. I had the pleasure of meeting him in person just this year. He was a sweet man and always asked about my brother, Tony. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Buddy was one heck of a guy and friend! He was always so willing to help out whenever he was asked. I got to know him over the last few years and consider him a friend for life. Buddy aka Budders will be missed by so many people that knew and loved him. Will see you on the other side! Thoughts and prayers for the family and special lady Val. Kelly

We are sorry to learn of Buddy's death. We look forward to seeing him alive again in the resurrection. Jesus promised, "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out to a resurrection." John 5:28, 29
