My condolences to Buddy’s family. Buddy, and my father, Al Denelli were friends and “brothers,” as firefighters become, in the North Adams Fire Department for many years. To his children and Barbara, I and my family are truly sorry for your loss. 💕

A very sweet man. I always felt welcome when I was growing up and came over to play. I'm so sorry that I now live in North Carolina and won't be able to attend his memorial. My deepest condolences to my childhood friend, Chick and all of the family.

My condolences to the Maroni and Dassatti family. Buddy was such a great man. I remember him taking as a young boy to the fire house and let me sit in the trucks, put on some boots that covered my whole leg and put on a helmet. You will be truly missed.
