Buel Case

Passed away on July 4, 2019

Buel Case age 73 of Albion passed away Thursday, July 4, 2019 at Oaklawn Hospital in Marshall. Buel was born February 15, 1946 in Dana, KY the son of Isaac and Alkie (Akers) Case.

Buel loved old Corvettes and going to car shows with his best friend, John Arey but his family mattered most to him, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He had a very kind, generous heart and would give the shirt off his back to help someone in need. He never met a stranger and loved to work; he was known to most as a workaholic.

Buel leaves to cherish his memory his children: Isaac (Amy) Case, Jeff (Jill) Case, step-son, James Lawrence; grandchildren: Taylor (Cody) Sanger, Kristen (Sterling) Case, Joseph Case (his special caregiver), Mackenzie Case and Catelynn Case; great-grandchildren: Jonas and Owen Sanger; siblings: Texann Tackett, Jewel Burkwalt, Creasie Ralston, Walleen Burkwalt, Yuel Case and many other family and close friends.

So sorry to hear about Bud passing. I spoke with him a few weeks ago at Parks Drug Store. Always enjoyed talking with him about cars (of course) and the olden days back in school. He was a good person and will be greatly missed. Thank God for his life.
