Nancy, Chub & Chris,
We are so sorry to hear of Buddy’s passing. Take comfort in knowing that he was a great man and loved you all. He was one of the last surviving residents of Crescent Parkway! He loved his boat and Deltaville too. He was a wonderful neighbor to us in my younger years. I can imagine he and Bob Dowdy already have the fishing rods ready! Peace and comfort to all of you.

I have great memories of summers spent with Uncle Buddy, Aunt Jean, Rusty, Wesley and Lee in Richmond and the river house. The hound dogs, playing Elvis records with the boys and fishing on his boat. Uncle Buddy was always fun to be around. The last in our family of the greatest generation. Much 💕
