To know Buddy was to love him and his dry sense of humor and wit. He was born in Choctaw County, Okla., to John and Nellie Crenshaw. After serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, he served the citizens of Fort Worth as a 32-year employee of the Water Department.
A loving father and grandfather, Buddy became an avid golfer in retirement. He also enjoyed fishing and spent many hours in his shop making toys for his grandsons. Buddy was an active member of First Baptist Church of Benbrook, participating in visitation programs.
Buddy was preceded in death by his parents, four brothers, and two sisters.
