Paul was a great neighbor and long time friend. I'm so sorry for the family's loss. Buzzy will be missed . He always had a smile that made you feel like you were more then just a neighbor or friend.

As friends in high school 1961-1962, everyone knew "Buzzy". His great laugh, his sense of humor and his booming voice would captivate one and all. We were special friends and later on in years, my son Mike became special friends with Joanne. Rest in peace

Uncle Buzzy was a such a loving kind and caring man. He was a wonderful friend to my father for many years. After my dad's passing it was comforting knowing I had my uncle Buzzy if I needed anything I knew he would be there. Now I find comfort in the belief that he and my dad have reunited now in heaven and are able to resume their friendship because both men were rare special treasures here on this earth.

Laura and family I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a pleasant person and I enjoyed seeing Laura and him walking by my house nearly every day. When I had my accident, they would stop and see how I was doing. May he Rest In Peace and my thoughts and prayers are with Laura and his family and friends.
