This year I leave you with the cry of our Junior High "Outlaw" Bicycle Club, The KooYahs.
"Awww Meow Meow Kooyah Yip Yip!".
The baddest 7th graders on wheels. We were known by few and feared by no one.
Racing through the residential streets, clad in armless blue jean jackets. Our elbows skabbed over from failed wheelie attempts.
Oh Well..maybe we were legends in our own minds...or maybe not?
"Sheby, Sheby Noppo!""

"I remember taking a ride to Dallas with Buzzy one night to see a movie.
I didn't know it was possible to drive (fast!) adjust the volume on a tape deck, carry on a conversation with somebody in the back seat, and flip the bird at a passing motorist all at the same time.  Buzzy could do it!  That was the wildest ride I have ever taken.  Buzzy, you were always a man of many talents.  Rest well, my friend."

"I first met Buzzy in gym class. I was in 7th grade and he was in 9th.  The other freshmen in the class treated us 7th graders like dirt, but Buzzy was always cool.   A few years later, he went to work at my parents'  business, and I got the chance to really get to know him.  I don't think I will ever forget Buzzy.  He was a good friend and a great person.   We'll all miss him."

"Buzzy and I shared so many escapades together. When I think back I don't know if I should laugh or cringe. Buzzy was a close friend and so much a part of my youth. I won't forget our times and your friendship Buz."

"Bob and I met Buzzy through work back in the early 80s and have valued his friendship.  His sense of humor and wonderful stories of growing up in a character-filled country town will be what I miss most.  He was always smiling and I hope I can hold that picture in my heart and memory forever."

This tribute was added by Pam Hammond on 7th February 2011

"I went to high school with Buzzy after our family moved to Texas from Colorado.  He had a way of distracting our teachers in a way that made school a lot of fun.  I will always remember his sense of humor and his fun-loving ways.  He will be greatly missed.

"I met Buzz in 1990 through my husband, Don. We spent most Friday evenings together until we moved in 1999. Buzz was an honorable and loyal friend. He was proud to be a Texan and proud to be a Griffith. Most admirably, he always kept his great sense of humor, even in the most difficult of times. We will miss him."

This tribute was added by Don Longshore on 4th February 2011

"Buzzy was the best friend I ever had.  He was so much fun to be around.  He was a wonderful combination of southern gentleman and irreverent rebel.  He had a deep sense of honor.      
  The last decade of his life was difficult.  But he worked hard and didn't loose his sense of humor.  
  I am honored to have been his friend.  I miss him so much.
  Godspeed, Buzz"
