A great guy! My first friend in the first grade at Horace Mann. Best man at my wedding. Encouraged me to be an active member of First Baptist Youth Choir. What difference that made in my life!  Greatly blessed to have known Buddy Clyburn!

Buddy! What a good friend, we started at Horace Mann and were friends all through school. We formed several bands together and played in the same group for many years. He will be greatly missed.

I still remember that I had just met Buddy and recieved a call from him that he had just learned to play "Walk, don't Run" on his guitar and wanted to know how soon we could form a bard.  Looked forward to seeing him at the reunion.  Agree great guy and talented musician.

Oh, wow.  I'm so sad to learn of his passing.  I was hoping to visit with him at the reunion.

I'm not sure, but I think Buddy learned how to play guitar from Tony Edmonds of the Rhythmasters.  After that, he created his own band cause he taught me, Ted Vance and Ronnie Klein how to play guitar.  And then he formed us into The Kashmeres in 1963.  I still have a stack of business cards that have each of our phone numbers on it back when we didn't have area codes.  Buddy's number was MO 4-7959.  Dickie Beckham played drums, Ronnie was bass guitar, Ted and I were rhythm and Buddy was lead guitarist.  We had gigs at a few small towns around Pampa and we played one time for the Pampa Boat & Ski Club.  Buddy was very patient with each one of us and we spent a lot of time at his house practicing.  He was always chewing on a guitar pick.
