Buzz,
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 was married to Dennis Pitts. Buzzy was a Dear Friend of Dennis' and mine. I had my Son try to call him today to help him buy a house. He found out and gave me a call. He was an awesome person. RIP Buzzy.

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 was the great love of my life. I am thankful he called me and I was able to go be with him and hold his hand the night before he died.

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.

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.

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

I never will forget

Shared by Jennifer Rabal on January 28, 2017

Many years have gone by but I still think of Buzzy. 

He was such a big part of my life for many years. 

I had not seen him for years when I received a call from him. 

So thankful he allowed me to be there near the end of his life. 

So many will always remember this witty, free spirit guy and so many 

Loved him but he truely took a piece of my heart with him. 

Definitely will never be forgotten.

I had known Buzzy for many years before I left Terrell. I lived behind him on 1st street. He helped me when I asked, and I did same for him if he asked. He was a very good friend for a lot of years. I lost contact in 1991, and I am sooy to hear of his passing.

God will watch over him now.

RIP Friend

My wife, Janis Bennett, taught Buzzy in the 7th grade and loved his antics - even  though disruptive.
