Jordan and Janie Bumpers Jordan in San Antonio, TX. Buddy loved fishing, golf, and cooking.

He spent many years working in the Pensacola area as a self-taught computer programmer and an insurance agent. After retiring, he moved back home to Chatom. He was a huge fan of Alabama Football- and would always post the abbreviation RTR! instead of the full "yell" of Roll Tide Roll!
