buzz was good person and friend to me. he was neighbors with kerniks on prospent ave for years and we grew up with him. so said that he died.
I just happened upon this and I’m sorry to see that Buzz has passed. I lived next door to him growing up. He was married to my cousin, Mary Ann. Rest in Peace Buzz! You were a great guy and always had a smile.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family today. You may not recognize my name, but I wanted to tell you I considered Buzz my friend. I bought some of his baskets and he bought pickup loads of firewood from me. My husband and I always enjoyed his company.
