  • Buddy Hoover was my Dad. This obituary really doesn’t cover his life and the lives that he touched. Very soon there will be the memorial service for this great man. It will be revealing everything that was in his heart and mind to those he loved the most. Dad was a man of great faith. His story of childhood, turmoil of the depression, and his adult life will be told. I never will forget this. Dad you made me promise and I will deliver! Always in my heart, Dewayne
