Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. We shared such good times with Buddy and Susan when our sons played sports with Michael and Steven. Buddy was such a great family man. May the memories you shared bring you comfort. Brenda and Ron Galbreath Mauldin SC

Condolences and prayers to the family. I knew Buddy briefly yet he was a fellow Blue Jacket. Rest in PEACE my fellow classmate and friend.

Buddy was our next-door neighbor in Ardsley Park. We saw him often, working around the yard, running errands, coming and going with Susan to and from their favorite eateries. He was kind, engaging, always willing to share stories about current events and the neighborhood, past and present. He was generous with his time, his expertise and his advice, happy to lend a tool, or lend a hand, for our occasional projects and repairs. He had a refined, dry sense of humor, his puns punctuated with his signature, high-pitched laugh. We spent the summer in Michigan, and he seemed to be okay when we left. We’ll soon be returning, and can’t believe he won’t be there when we arrive.

I’m so sorry to hear of Buddy’s passing. I remember so fondly childhood memories with Buddy and his family, especially his sister Ann, as backyard neighbors! My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family.
