Our deepest sympathy goes to the family. Chief Buddy was an important asset to the Charleston Fire Department for many years. He was an easy guy to talk to and always smiling. Rest easy my Brother.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I will miss talking with Buddy at every Stingrays game. He was the kindest most gentle man. My husband and I would occasionally see him working at plays and concerts too. He didn't seem to enjoy the concerts as much. The last one we went to he showed us the schedule of the lineup. He asked what the band TNATF means. When I told him he said I'm getting too old for this Goodbye

Mr. Buddy Carter was such a positive influence to so many people, especially kids and their parents. I always knew that baseball season was upon us when Buddy would walk through the door. I think of him as "Mr. Baseball". Whenever I would ask Buddy how he was doing, he would answer, "Oh pretty good, pretty good" no matter how he was really feeling. Buddy will be missed by me and by his entire St. Andrew's family!
