Carl "Buddy" Conway, Jr., age 78, of Montgomery, Alabama passed away on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. Carl was born September 1, 1942 in AL to Bernice Conway Kusik and Carl B. Conway Sr..

He was preceded in death by father Carl B. Conway Sr.; mother Bernice Conway Kusik and step father Stan Kusik.

Carl was a good man and lifelong friend. He was my cousin. We went through our youth and school years together. He was a kind, caring man and always let one know he appreciated meeting them and treasured their friendship. He will b missed by all the people whose lives he touched. RIP Carl.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Buddy for many years at Capitol Chevrolet and Jack Ingram. He always made the effort to come see us after he retired and visit and catch up on all the happenings and fill us in on your happenings. Loved Buddy like a brother. I will be holding all of you in my prayers.
