Buckwheat was a friend to everyone. He loved to visit and talk with people whether he knew them or not. He enjoyed taking rides in coal trucks and his side by side. Fish feared him and he enjoyed many happy times down by the river or by the lake reeling them in.

A funeral service will be held in the funeral home on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 11 AM with Rev. Lee Robertson officiating. Interment will be held in Kalbaugh Cemetery, Elk Garden, WV.

Buckwheat's family would like to thank the Kitzmiller community and many coal truck drivers for sharing rides and always keeping an eye out for him during his daily adventures.
