To Ruth, Brian and Anthony I want to add my condolences. Buzz was a true original! He was gruff and never politically "correct" but you always knew exactly where you stood with Buzz. Can't say that about many folks anymore!

Buzz was a true original and I will miss him. He's one of those rare individuals who seemed to have been around since the beginning of time and would be around until the end of time. Although I did not see him often in recent years, I feel the void he leaves with his passing.

I have so many fond memories of Buzz: stopping to see him on my many trips between Utah and California over the course of two decades (and really, over the course of three-plus decades), always remembering who I was on sight or on the phone without having to give a genealogy, sitting on the couch that's older than I am and watching the evening news with him (during and after the cigar years), urging me to play the piano on a visit with the family, propping my feet up on the coffee table with its stacks of newspapers and magazines, introducing me to really good steak in really out-of-the-way places, the bowls of nuts and mints on the counter next to his favorite chair, backstage tickets to the circus, the turtles in his backyard, his dogs, the Cadillac that (as rumor has it) did 100 miles/hour between Vegas and Rancho Cucamonga to make it to Grandpa Ralph's funeral on time, taking a genuine interest in my kids, and so much more.

And, I'll never ever forget the first time Buzz and I spoke on the phone. I was 12. He scared the heck out of me with his gruff demeanor and sailor-like language. After the initial shock, I quickly learned to love that about him. I'm pretty sure his favorite phrase was, "Oh hell!" The memories of his expletives and his refusal to be politically correct make me smile.

God speed, Buzz. I look forward to that day when we will meet again. (And in the meantime, go easy on the angels, OK?)

Much love,

Dear Brian, Ruth, Anthony, & Merilee,

We are sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad, our "Uncle Herm."

He often visited our home in Reno on his way to his ranch in Oregon. We enjoyed hearing about his life and travels. He took an interest in our three children, and would send them notes or letters to tell them how proud he was of their accomplishments.

We will miss Uncle Herm and his kindness, wonderful stories, and his joyous laughter. He was one of a kind.

Love to each of you,
Your cousins,
Sybil and Family

My deepest condolences on the loss of your father, Brian (and Ruth) and Anthony. I am overwhelmed with sadness.
I have so many great memories of your dad, covering many, many years. Such a true character :)
And yes, he really lived his life to the fullest; I hope you both will always take after him. His bright light and love of life will surely be missed in this world.
Please know you are in my thoughts, and I will see you at the services.
Love, Kathleen

I worked for "Buzz" as an office boy and runner filing papers for him at the courthouse in 1963-64. It was my first real job at 13 years old. I was always very impressed with him. Sorry to hear of your loss. Sounds like he lived a very full life.

Your dad had a beg heart. I know this because when I was just 16 years old. My parents sent me to live with him and the boys. Anthony and Brian my only cousins. My uncle Buzz loved me and took excelent care of me. In the evening we would sit and he whould tell me storie after stories of my family. I Loved this man more than he ever new. God Bless you Uncle Buzz. Thank you for being there for me. I really need you and your friendship.

Dear Brian, Ruth, Anthony, and Merilee,
I am so sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. Herman is my last uncle and the one I hold the most memories of from childhood and throughout my life.

The obituary is written so lovely and tells his story so well. The last time I saw him when he was in Valley Hosptial last summer, he asked me how my love life was and I told him I had a nice man in my life. He said that Merilee had a nice guy in her life, too. Then, he said "Yeah, I'm through with all that romance stuff." I told him it wasn't all that bad being single. I laugh every time I think of that conversation. He was a corker.

He will be missed by all of our family but we are quite certain that mom - Karma - was there to meet him and now heaven is complete for her. She is reunited with her partner in crime and they are telling stories about the old days and laughing so loudly together.

Love and prayers to you all,
