This panel was created by volunteers of the NZ Quilt Project as a result of a request.

The Project did an educational visit to Onehunga High School where an American exchange student (Arianna Nesbitt) was attending. She requested a panel be made for Dr Buddy who, she said, had been like a father to her. She wanted his panel fo be on the NZ Quilt Project because she so loved her time here and felt that “New Zealand would be a perfect place for him to be.”

The tree is a spiritual tree with the names of all those who will remember.

Arianna’s tribute to Dr Buddy.
Dr Buddy was born on 9 April 1943 and died on 16 November 1990. He graduated from Texas A & M University with a degree in veterinary medicine, and loved animals and children. He loved horses, dogs, birds, mules, and peacocks. He was a man that had a very big heart and cared about everyone.

In his first marriage he had two children, Matt and Eva. He was remarried to Tina who had two children, Eddie now 17 and Kelly 14 (in 1993). Tina and Dr Buddy also had a child, T.J. who is now 9 (in 1993).

The maroon, white and black in the Quilt represent the school colours of Texas A & M which Dr Buddy was so proud of.
