Mr. George Richard "Buddy" Morse III died suddenly on August 22, age 39.  Born July 19, 1975 in Fort Gordon, Ga he attended Lake City's public schools and lived here most of his life. 
He is preceded in death by grandparents George and Lorraine Morse, Edmon and Penny Chambliss, and cousin Melissa Chambliss.
An easygoing charm, generous smile and twinkling eyes made him immensely likeable, even to those he had just met.  His gentle, self-effacing personality, however, belied a deep intelligence and an extraordinary grasp of current events, pop culture and politics.
He enjoyed laughing and making others laugh, sometimes by reciting lengthy snippets of television comedies, verbatim, but more often with a wry critique on the subject at hand.
He also loved the outdoors and went fishing whenever he had the chance.  
 He was generous to a fault, and always willing to lend a helping hand.  Most importantly, he loved his family with his entire being.  As his daughter recently said, "No matter what, he had my back."
He is survived by his daughter, Serenity Alexis Morse, son, Payne Richard Morse, parents, Sharon and George Richard Morse, Jr., and sister, Allie Morse Knight (Jeff). His special little buddies (nephews) Keegan and Karder Knight.
Other survivors include an aunt, Branda Mangum (Mike); and uncles Daniel Morse (Anina), Robert Morse (Patricia), John Morse (Ross), and Larry Chambliss (Rosa); and several cousins.
