  1. Buddy and I went through high school together and started a moving and hauling business together in 1972. We had such a great time together even though we messed up jobs we had. We enjoyed the eating more than anything. We worked at SNET together, him in the phone store and me a service rep. i will miss him alot. My deepest regrets to his family, Seb

  2. My family and I are deeply saddened by the loss of Buddy. His loving nature, integrity, contagious smile and witty sense of humor will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Words cannot begin to express how sorry we are. God could not have taken a better man or a more loving father.

  3. We grew up in the same neighborhood bounded by James St, Whitney Av, Norwood St and Riverside Dr. Playing in Legion Field and in the woods by the Mill River. Buddy was a lifelong friend and My Mom and I are deeply saddened by his passing. I just found out the awful news and wished I could have been to the service. Our sympathy goes to Bicky and all those who loved Buddy.
