"I had him for my 6th grade teacher have thought of him often over the years he was a very good teacher and cared for his students. He was always kind to me I was a very lonely child and shy he took time with me to make me feel like I mattered in the world. I asked where he went after he left and was told he got a job with Reynolds tobacco . He was the one teacher that I remember fondly of. You were luckey to have him for a father I wish I had one like him."
"Thinking of you today dad as always. Have so much to share with you. Until we meet again Lone Ranger. Love always, the boss"
"Dad, I can't believe three years have passed. Seems like just yesterday. I think of you most days and am reminded how lucky I am to have you in my life. I know you are there guiding me and watching over me. I love you more than words could ever describe. What I wouldn't give to hear that whistle now."
"Three years later and dad crosses my mind more and more each passing day. We never get over losing a parent, we just learn how to live without them. Thanks Buddy for teaching me what to, and what not to do in life. Love you Pop!"
I liked reading your tribute, you just put a BIG smile on my face! It's nice to hear stories about dad. That sounds just like something he would do "hunting". Before he passed he spoke a lot about wanting to hunt and visit old friends. I guess he knew the end was near and wanted to enjoy what he loved best. Keep sharing!"
"With the baseball season opening I am reminded of Buddy's love of baseball and his skill as a catcher. Just yesterday I told someone about our bird hunting days when we would "Buddy hunt". What that meant was that we would let the dogs out and they would cover a field. If their was not a point on birds we would call the dogs in and go to another hunting spot. "The good old days""
"Thinking of you today daddy with a heavy heart. I so wish you were here today. Molly misses you a lot too, I so wish I could here your voice and see your big smile. If only I could call you and hear how you would always greet me with a happy tone and a "hey baby". I miss that more than you could ever know. I know you are in a better place and watching over us. Until we meet again. Pearl"
"Janis Brown, I just read your tribute. He probably was your teacher as he did teach in Florida for awhile. He spoke about his students and how much he liked teaching. Thanks for the kind words, it's always nice to hear how positively he impacted people. Was such a great father and friend."
"If thjs is the teacher that tought in Palatka Florida back in the late 60's he was a great man and a great teacher. I was his student in 6'th grade. I also saw him ever day the next year at school. He alwase had time to speak to me.He was my friend as well as my teacher. I have thought of often over the years. he will be missed by all."
"Happy Birthday Daddy! Miss you bunches! Love you."
"I am so honored to have confirmed what I already knew, and that is what a great father and friend dad truly was. He taught me so much about life and how to treat and respect people. I am so thankful to have had him in my life. I hope he is smiling down on us all now! Love you dad"
"Thank you everyone for visting this site and sharing your memories. I only found out about it just today. Keep sharing!"
"I am very sorry to hear that Buddy has died. He was one of my favorite coworkers when he was at Howard Perry and Walston. We will always remember his sense of humor, comments and laughs."
"Buddy and I were friends all during high school and beyond. He was an usher in our wedding. Sylvia and I extend our deepest sympathy and prayers to Mrs. Weaver and Jean and other family members. Truly a friend and I'll miss him."
"My condolences go out to family and friends
Buddy was a great guy and will be missed dearly
I was lucky to share so many laughs with him and his buddies"
"Many years have gone by since I met Buddy, & though I had only met him once or twice, through his daughter, I still remember what a sweet & caring individual he was. I know that he will be missed by many & my heart & condolences go out to the family."
"To the Family. The Bible assures us at Psalm 34:18 "Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." More than anything else, a relationship with God can help you cope with the death of your loved on"
"I am saddened to hear of the passing of Buddy. Buddy was always the friend you could count on. Buddy was really one who should have been called "your Buddy". From baseball to hunting Buddy was always "your Buddy"."
