His ‘brother from another mother’ & best friend Scott Franks and wife Rhaine, brother in crime, fishing and anything outdoors Tom Reiberg, amazing employer but more importantly biggest fan Linda Weixelman and a true cowboy who always had his back Donny Mallet. His entire extended Beaver Meadows family, some who got the pleasure to work with him and others that were lucky enough to cross paths with him during their stay at the Beav. He was preceded in death by his grandparents Bud & Darline Vaughan. Buddy was born on October 19, 1974 and was raised in Everson Washington, graduating from Mt. Baker High School in 1993. He absolutely loved the outdoors and was an icon “redneck”. At a young age he began working on a dairy farm milking and doing chores. After graduating from high school and working for T&T Recovery and Mt. Baker Roofing, he headed to Wyoming to be a ranch hand for a year. Following his best friend Scott, he moved to Red Feather Lakes, Colorado and found his true home away from home at Beaver Meadow Resort. Love you kiddo! See you when we see you...
