In 1995 after 29 years, Buddy retired from the Ordnance Department, Naval Weapons Station. He was especially proud of the presidential award he received from President Jimmy Carter in the 1980's for making a part at Naval Weapons Station for the government. Buddy enjoyed working on cars just as much as he loved driving them. He also was quite a builder, as he completely restored the historical Cappahosic House while he lived there for over a 10 year period which included a whole new addition. Whenever you saw Buddy he always had a bubbly attitude and a smile on his face.
