Julian, as we called him in Destin, was an avid fisherman aboard the Charter Boat SUNRISE with Capt. Kelly Windes. He was quick with a joke and was well liked with his positive attitude and happy demeanor. When the fishermen were faced with being pushed out of Destin and raised capital to build a marina of their own, Julian stepped up as a "friend of the fishermen" and became a partner with them to keep the charter boats in Destin.  We are proud to call him our friend!

2011-05-31 08:06:43I was so sad to hear of the death of Mr. Buddy. He was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He was a respected and honest businessman, who always made us feel the most important people. We think his birthday party at the Butcher Block at the 2010 Gin Show is our favorite time with him. Tony & Jeannie Dollar, Friend and Business associa wrote at
