    Buddy’s wife, children, and grand children,
    Sorry to hear this and news. Being a survivor of someone who you dearly love, I can say I know how you feel and God will be with you every step.

    We went to school together and he was always fun to be with. I pray for comfort from God for you.

    Buddy I sure enjoyed the good and the once in a while bad times we had at Gilman. Actually the bad times were mostly when we thought we were going home for the weekend to fish or do whatever it was everybody did to enjoy themselves. Always pulled for you to win a bass tournament. I’ll always remember that smile and that laugh that could light up a break room. See you on the other side ole friend. Rest easy Buddy.

    My family and I feel very lucky to have known Buddy and called him a friend. I will never forget the times we spent at the hunting club together he really helped me deal with the loss of my father and I will be forever grateful for the time we spent riding around in his buggy drinking busch light and shooting the breeze. Buddy was such a kind man my children immediately took him and every time we loaded up to go to the club they asked me if Buddy was going to be there, of course they would be so disappointed if I said no. My heart goes out to his entire family for your incredible loss.
