Buddy was the SFA High School band director, Principal at Bonham and Henderson, and BISD Assistant Superintendent for a total of 38 years; Jeane was a typing and shorthand teacher at SFA High School and then at Bryan High School for a total of 33 years.
They have two children: Karen and husband Rudy Loehr and Mike McGown and wife Judy; six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Best wishes to this wonderful couple!
