Buddy was an extraordinary man. There are many in the community who will deeply mourn his passing as he lived a life of service, love, compassion, excellence and friendship. May he rest in peace.

Buddy, I remember a lot of the fun things we did at Crossroads School. You were always fun to be around when I came to visit my family and I am truly sorry that I didn't get by to see you when I was there a while back. Two things stand out in my mind about you. You had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh and you would give anyone the shirt off of your back if they needed it. Crossroads has lost a great citizen.
