Buddy enjoyed showing horses. In 1972, he and his special horse, Caper, won the World Championship Pleasure Racking Horse title. He loved being a Papaw. Not a weekend went by that his home was not filled with the laughter of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Most of all, his love for God and singing His praises left a legacy that will live on. Sing on Papaw. We love you and will see you again someday.
