I met Buddy in Lake Ozark, MO in the middle to late 90's. He was a great tennis player. At the age of 80, he was still trying to improve his tennis skills. He was a very kind person and will be missed.

Bud was a big part of the success that the St. Louis Hawks enjoyed in the late 50's and early 60's! He created and built fan enthusiasm that filled Keel Auditorium game after game and had the largest fan base of any NBA Team due to the powerful airwaves of radios station KMOX. He nicknamed us all and we basked in the limelight of the formative and golden era of the fledgling NBA. Cliff Hagan (Lil' ABner) ST. Louis Hawks 1956-66

Cardinal baseball in our kitchen for many of my growing up years. The Blattner Family were our close neighbors in Normandy... many, many fond memories. Please accept the condolences of the Riegert Family.

I played tennis with Buddy at the Lake of the Ozarks for several years, together with other guys (Ray, Bryan, etc.) on Fridays and sometimes on Saturdays. He was a kind man, and always had a story or two. He lives on in our memories. Condolences to the family, and a prayer for all.

Buddy used to broadcast Cardinal baseball games by reading the play-by-play information from the tele-type, and would make the game exciting for the radio fans. I know this, because my Dad, Joe Kinsella, was the telegrapher who typed it for Buddy, from the Morse Code being sent from wherever the game was being played. Buddy had a great talent, and he will be missed.

Please accept the condolences of the Kinsella Family to the Blattner Family.
