Buddy wove his way into our family becoming a major element in everyone’s heart. He was wise, intelligent, gentile and loving. Buddy was beyond a gifted carpenter…he was a craftsman and very proud of his work. He was an avid NC tar Heels fan. Gone all too soon, Buddy will be dearly missed by us all. We will honor him forever by cherishing our memories. GO HEELS !
