I remember hanging out at Buddy's house but usually not with him as he was younger and let's face it, who want's a little kid hanging around when you're almost a teenager? lol
I loved being around him. He was a shy but polite young man. I wish we had been closer during our adult years. RIP Buddy. You will be missed.

We worked for several years with Buddy's wife, Leigh Ann, at the VA. We only had the privilege of meeting him one time, at an office gathering, but we always heard nothing but great things from his wife. Our deepest sympathies to Leigh Ann and her family. God Bless.

Leigh Ann and family, I’m so sorry that Buddy’s life was so short but we thank God for the certainty of Heaven and knowing he’s now there with Jesus. I think of his grin and how it would break out into a big old smile. His love for family was evident too. I think back to years ago when he was servicing cash machines at the cafeteria at Baptist Medical center in LR and I’d say hi Buddy and there’d be that grin. God bless all of you at this time. Love to you.
