Lloyd “Buddy” Hundley Garland, III passed away at his home in Greensboro on Friday, March 26, 2021. A celebration of his life will be held on Friday, April 2, 2021 at 2:00 pm at Hanes-Lineberry Sedgefield Chapel, 6000 West Gate City Blvd., in Greensboro. Buddy was born in Washington, DC on October 11, 1941 to the late Lt. Col. Lloyd H. Garland, Jr. and Maree T. Garland. Being born into a military family, they lived in many places all over the United States and Canada. He was involved in swimming, track and field, football, baseball, and basketball all through his youth and in college he played football for the University of Hawaii. When he met the love of his life, Sandra Carmi, they settled in Northern Virginia. Buddy worked for Motorola Communications and Electronics as an award-winning regional sales manager and retired after 25 years. His extracurricular activities included reading (especially historical novels), watching and attending sporting events, coaching and refereeing little league football and baseball, managing youth sports leagues, and was also highly involved in high school boosters. He loved animals and the great outdoors, especially the ocean, where the family spent many vacations along the southern East Coast. After retirement, he and Sandra moved to North Carolina in 2001, where he spent his recent years enjoying and supporting his grandchildren’s activities. In addition to his parents, Buddy was preceded in death by a sister, Margaret Boyd; and a brother, Richard Garland. Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 58 years, Sandra Carmi Garland; children, Kimberly Garland Field (and husband, Brian) of Crofton, MD, Christopher Carmi Garland (and wife, Anne) of Greensboro, NC, and Kevin Garland (and wife, Melissa) of Greensboro, NC; grandchildren, Andrew Garland, Noah Taylor, Dawson Taylor, Kristen Garland, Kelli Garland, and Hailey Garland; sisters, Patricia Hernandez and Victoria Walton; brother, Randolph Garland; and other extended family members. Flowers may be sent to Hanes-Lineberry Sedgefield Chapel. Memorial contributions in his memory may be made to The Autism Project, Inc., (a Maryland nonprofit organization that benefits his grandson, Noah) or since he was a lover of all animals, the World Wildlife Fund. Online condolences may be made at Due to COVID-19 restrictions, social distancing and masks are required.

Dear Sandy and Family of Buddy,
My husband and I are so very sorry to hear of Buddy's passing.
I didn't know Buddy well but will miss his happy presence! We were on the transition board together and he and I spoke a few times at length. I found him, and our few conversations delightful.
Please accept our sincere condolences and may God give you and your family strength during this difficult time. May He also bring you comfort, in happy memories and times shared with Buddy.

Dearest Sandy,Chris,Kim and Kevin,
We are so sorry for your loss of Buddy. We have such wonderful memories of all those football years since our boys were 8 years old and all the way through high school. Many fun times, he helped raise great kids with Sandy but then shared his talents with many, many others. He will be greatly missed but not forgotten. Our deepest sympathy and love to all of you. Carole and Mike Russo and family
