      Man what some great pictures and spoken memories, it goes to show the quality of a man Buddy was AND the quality of this entire BS family, of which I'm proud to be a part of.

        I meet him a couple of times through Big Dave on the tour. He did seem like a great guy and everyone had only good things to say about him. RIP sir!

          RIP Buddy. It was always a treat to see him. I feel as if I barely knew him and yet it feels like I've lost a family member.

          I think this was the first time I met him in 2013:

            So bummed to hear about this last night. Buddy was a great guy and will definitely be missed. Hugs to Beth and the family.
            January seems to be a bad month for Bangshifters. Mike Franks, Bernie's dad Pops, and now Buddy have all passed in January. Glad this month is almost over.

                Most of these are from when Buddy drove up to Michigan to help us put the motor in the Cutlass.
