Buddy Ross Sutherland, 93, of McCamey, passed away on Friday, November 11, 2022, in McCamey.

 

Buddy was born on April 24, 1929, in Cisco, Texas to Farris and Victoria Sutherland.  He had two brothers and five sisters.

Buddy and Charlotte were faithful members of the Church of Christ for over 70 years.  He was a dedicated employee with Phillips Petroleum for 33 years. 

 

Even growing up in the depression and being very poor, Buddy never told a sad story.  He would always say, “It’s been a wonderful Life.”  He loved his family. Buddy loved watching his sons play sports.  He was extremely proud when both his sons played football for Permian and won state, and later watching his grandchildren play a variety of sports.

 

Buddy loved fishing, hunting, traveling and always looked forward to his family reunions. Buddy was always a jokester telling the grandkids “I’m still prettier than you are.”

Most of all he was always so proud of all his immediate and extended family.
