He is also survived by brother Weldon Jr.; sisters Bonita, and Louise. <br>Buddy will be sadly missed by his family, sisters-in-law, brothers- in-law, nieces and nephews and his many friends and coworkers. <br> <br>He was predeceased by his sisters Hazel, and Nora; brothers, Malcolm and Arnold, all of New Brunswick. <br> <br>Cremation has taken place.
