Buddy was a Charter Member of National Hills Lions Club and a WWII Army Veteran having landed at Normandy Beach on D2 and later fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He was a very dedicated, great Lion who served for more than 30 years as our Lion Tamer. He was a Melvin Jones Fellow, a member of the Lions Hall of Fame and recipient of numerous District and State Awards. Buddy was 97 years old.
