I'm so sorry for,your loss. Buddy was 2 years ahead of me at BC and became my insurance agent while I was still an undergraduate. He ultimately brought me in to the insurance business. Ni looked forward to seeing him at the Pike's Peak Hockey Club golf tournament every year.

My heartfelt condolences. I still have the sweetest letter he wrote me after Lacey's wedding. His acknowledgement of thanks was such a special and thoughtful message from a father of the bride. It spoke of what a wonderful man Buddy was. I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you, Sandy Knox

I had the privilege of meeting Buddy many
years ago thru our group golf trips to Florida. He was a classy gentleman. He touched many lives and will be missed.

Lacey and Diane, there are no words to express how Gordie impacted our lives. He took such good care of us professionally at first, then he quickly became more...a true friend who kept up with Terry and encouraged him while he battled chemo. I can still see him sitting in our patio laughing & taking Terry's mind off how badly he felt. He was a generous and caring man who has left a big hole in many lives.

In the short time I knew Buddy as my next door neighbor, he left a lasting impression on me. He will be missed.

Hopefully someday in our lifetimes we will see a cure for these terrible diseases that take way too many good people too soon.
