Aww Jody, I agree Buddy loved Betty with his whole heart. I don’t ever remember them being unkind to each other. He was always smiling and laughing, and a patient man. Betty was the same with Buddy. I’m praying for peace and comfort for all of you. He will be missed.

My pap was larger than life to me, not just in stature, as he was 6ft. 5 and near 300 lbs. most of his life, but in his ora and actions. I have tried to emulate him as a husband and father because i have always noticed the way he treated his family, especially grandma. He hung the moon and stars for her and I never witnessed them arguing even once, maybe an occasional bickering, which my grandma ALWAYS won, but never a fight. I loved that he always made time to throw a baseball or football in the yard, even after a few broken windows or the ears off the stone deer in their front yard, which still stands today, some 40 years later, and yes, still with no ears! Pap loved movies, especially old westerns, he would bring home 4-5 movies from the video store every Friday for us to watch over the weekend as I stayed there quite often on weekends. He also loved to go on road trips and on occasion would load up either his chevy pick up with a make shift bed in the cargo compartment for us kids to travel on or we would go in my uncle Bobby's chevy conversion van, whether to Cleveland to visit relatives or Niagra Falls. He always made sure i received packages while at deployed locations just summing up his caring of family. My regret today is that I never told him how much his life represents my life and how lucky the people around me are because of how he lived, laughed, and loved everyone he touched. I whispered this into his ear last week, i sure hope he heard me, I Love you pap, and your legacy will live through me moving foreward, hope i dont let you down. Last but not least.......IT IS NOW.........POST TIME!!! Im sure your horse will win, until we meet again, rest in peace knowing Grandma is taken care of.

I grew up with the Fowler family in the hamlet of North Mountain. We played together and went to school together. Lee was the high school guy when I was in grade school but he would play with us kids for baseball by batting left handed. I recall the high esteem our family held in him when after his Father died he had to take on adult responsibilities to help support them. I recall after school all day he would work several hours a day at the Dirting Turkey Farm in cleaning out the buildings. He knew hard work and sacrifice for others. I am sending a picture of Lee as a high school student who was tall and bent over so as to not be as noticeable. I hope that it comes through. Kenny & Kathy were some of my age mates that I hold with warm memories of that time and place.
