Buddy will be missed for his many stories; some he would embellish, all because he loved the hearers to laugh and be happy.
Buddy’s memories will live on with all who knew him because Buddy was “that kind of a guy.” Specific and warmest memories are attributed to his family: a son, Charles Reid, Jr.; and Daughters,
Tiffany Maxwell, Daneshia Henderson, and Jasmine Wilson. Siblings: Dr. Arlene (Thomas) Shider, Blanche (Joseph) Hamilton, Redell (Eric) Dungey, Daniel (Alean) Wright Uncles: Joe (Mattie) Adams, George (Lou Ann) Adams; Aunts: Essie Mae James (God Mother), Angela (Isaac) Ladson along with several grandchildren, nephews, nieces, friends and coworkers.
