My sorrow and prayers are with all of the Buehner family for the passing of such a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He and my dad have been friends since my coached PeeWee Football in Germantown and I can remember (barely) him being on the sidelines cheering on his boys while they were on by dad's team. Remember him and my dad talking football while watching Ted play in High School. One great man.
