He graduated from Clinton High School in 1951, and loved reminiscing about his glory days playing football there.  After graduation, Buddy became a paratrooper in the US Army during the Korean War.  He later earned his degree from Indiana State University and went on to teach mathematics, until transitioning to the business world where he held multiple roles in sales and marketing, including Columbia Records and StoneMor Group.  Even in his later years, Buddy never lost his sense of humor and always managed to make people laugh with his witty comebacks.

Loved working with Bud. He always made work fun. Never a dull moment with him. He will be missed.

I had the pleasure of working with Bud. When I first met him, I was a little surprised. I had spoken to him on the phone a few times, and was surprised to find the man didn't match the voice. However, his personality did match his voice, big and booming! He was very protective of me in the beginning and always worried about me. He and I became friends and I loved hearing his stories. I asked him on several occasions to please record his stories and adventures! He and I shared several laughs. One of the things that I loved about him was his love for animals. Have you ever seen a squirrel come into an office and sit in a chair to collect peanuts? That happened. This squirrel (he named her Gwendolyn) would come in the office looking for him to collect her peanuts. She would even take them from his hand. When he left the company, she would still come into the office looking for him. He loved Tia and his grand babies. He always said she was the best. We lost touch after he left the company, but I have thought of him fondly very often. I am sad to hear of his passing, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family. Just know he will always be remembered for being a wonderful man and story teller.

Wow! I had no idea that Uncle Buddy passed away. Mom just informed me of it today. I remember coming to play barbies at Tia's when we were kids and Buddy liked to tease me and called me a "flaky" kid😊. Just wanted to express my deepest sympathies and will keep my sweet cousin Tia and family in my prayers for peace and comfort. God Bless3

Just learned of Louis Tasso's death earlier in the month. Louie and I started our teaching careers in the Fall of 1961 at Scottland High School, about 12 miles West of Dana in Illinois. We carpooled for two years as we both lived in Clinton. He should have been teaching in college as his Math and Science background was outstanding. I knew he went to Alton, Illinois and taught there. My wife and I moved to California in 1964. A great Green Bay Packer fan. He was in the same graduating class with my sister Marilyn. One of the nice guys and I'm sure he is missed by those he loved.
