Buddy was a lifelong Dairy Farmer and lover of the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and in the early years running his rabbit dogs. He was a jack of all trades and everyone's handyman. He enjoyed time listening to his classic country music in his man cave sipping Wawa coffee and creating his next masterpiece: a bird box or a squirrel feeder. Buddy was a lover of all furry and feathered friends. He was a lifelong Washington Redskins and Baltimore Orioles fan. Most recently he cheered on his college football team, the Michigan Wolverines. He was an avid player of the Maryland Lottery, Mega Millions, Powerball and Casino in Charlestown and waited for his big win. Buddy took his pride and was happiest spending time with his loving family.
"Pap", as his grandchildren called him, will be remembered, and deeply missed by his beloved grandson Jeff "Pete". He is survived by one son at home, David, three daughters: Karen Howell (Jon) of Frederick, MD, Pam Jenkins (Kirk) of Trappe, MD, and Kim Routzahn (Jeff) of Smithsburg, MD.
