So sorry to hear about the passing of Buddy Wilkerson.  What a fabulous person he was.  I only knew him for one year, but he made a lasting impression on me for his friendship, leadership, niceness and professionalism.  As the drum major of Lafayette's band and the first chair of the trumpet section, Buddy would take detailed instructions from Mr. Hall, our band director, and show us exactily what Mr. Hall had in mind.  He also led the band in most of our performances.  He was the type of person that everyone would have wanted as a life-long friend.  I wasn't able to access his obituary, but I'm sure he was successful in life and will surely be missed by his family and friends.
