Buddy married Eva Nell Joslin on July 6, 1953 which blessed them with two children, three granddaughters, and five great-grandchildren. Buddy served in the Army during WWII. He was a member of IOOF #77 for several years serving as Vice Grand and Vice Noble Grand. He was a long time member and Deacon of Community Bible Fellowship of Dike. He retired from E-Systems where he worked as an aircraft electrician at 62, but that did not slow him down. He was always working on something and could do just about anything.
He is survived by his wife, Eva Nell McMahan; his son, Wesley McMahan & wife, Cindy of Russellville, AR; daughter, Tewana Dorner of Humble, TX; granddaughters: Cyndi McFadyen with daughter, Rebecca of Humble, TX; Vonda Dorner and children, JD, LJ, and Evalyn of Humble, TX; Aimee Moody with husband, Lucas and daughter, Emma of Russellville, AR. He is also survived by one sister, Lorene Parker of Grand Prairie and many nephews and nieces.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter & Rebecca; an infant brother; his sisters, Rachel Tatum and Aleene Marshal.
There will be a farewell service and fellowship at 2 pm on Friday, July 10 at Community Bible Fellowship of Dike.
Arrangements are under the direction of Murray-Orwosky Funeral Home.
