I met Buster long ago while working at Atlantic Farms. We became good friends working and raccoon hunting together. A man who told it like it was; a hard working man! Wish I could have seen him recently to talk, time sure does go by fast. I thought a lot of your Buster. I know he will be sadly missed.

Mr. Lockley was one of the first craftsmen I met when I moved to Swan Quarter in 1983. He repaired and replaced the floor on my front porch (house built in 1922) and did a really good job. It is still intact and being used these 34 years later! My condolences to his family.

Mr. Buster was such a sweet man. He always had a big smile and hug for me. He was a wonderful carpenter and did great work for Eddie and I many years ago. I have known many of his children and love the warm and sweet ways of them also. May the family have many blessings, peace and love to comfort them. In Christ love, Gwen

Mr. "Buster" was always very kind and friendly to Mike and me. My dad, Charlie Jennette always spoke highly of him also. Thankful Mr. "Buster" had a wonderfully long life filled with lots of family who loved him.
