I’ve known Buddy most of my life and always admired him and talking with him about when he was a Golden Gloves Boxer and New England Champion. Buddy was a great man and was glad to be his friend.

To the Family of Buddy DeCarlo: We were very sorry to see Buddy's name in the obits. I hadn"t seen him for quite awhile and thought he might have moved to Florida. I missed him not playing his scratch-off tickets every day. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.
