I knew him from CCP, I worked as a nurse there, from 1993 til 2004, I always called him "Buz" I believe he had that nickname for quite sometime, Buz was always kind to me, and defended me many times , when others would disrespect me, I really liked Buz, he was comical, and always called me "Shirley " even though my name is "Cheryl". When I would run into him years later, he always said "Hello" even if he had to yell from across the street at me, I seen his sister several weeks ago who said he was having issues with his heart, I don't get a paper, but I'm guessing this had something to do with his death. Physically he may have had a bad heart, but, he had a good heart for others, I'm glad I was I got to know him for a short time, he always made me smile,an giggle, What please tell memories I have, he will be greatly missed
