He loved Gospel music and was a big part of his wife. He sang many years with the Gospel Quartet The Songsmen.
He retired as a mail carrier with the Paragould Post Office. He and Florine have been members of First Assembly of God since around 1948. Buddy and Florine traveled around the US with family, friends and with the senior bees, but never found any place they loved as much as their Paragould.
A special thanks to beloved APRN Debbie Miles who kept him going for so many years.
