The funeral services were in Big Wells, TX at the family plot Monday 4/13/09 and was private.

I don't know why the family hasn't had anything about his death in the local papers. There are still people in Alice that knew him that haven't even heard of his death.

I was under the impression that the family plot was in Pearsall, TX where he and George were raised. It is also the resting place of Jennifer Strait (George Strait daughter). This is a very private family and I think more than anything they did not want publicity and just privacy.

I took was surprised the funeral was in Big Wells, because George's daugher as you said is buried in Pearsall. That is where his dad will be buried as well...that stone is already set up close by Jenifer's. There is no the family could have announced where or when the services would take place without it turning into a public feeding frenzie. These are private people and they so deserve privacy in this time of sorrow. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire Strait family.

My sincere sympathy goes out to the Strait family. I think if you knew Buddy you would know why he was laid to rest in Big Wells. If you didnt know him it was because that is were he always was. You would find him in the mornings at the cafe having breakfast or on his way to the ranch. Rest in peace Buddy and one day we'll meet again.....

It has been asked that donations be made to the Jenifer Strait Memorial Foundation.

I feel so badly about Buddy, and there is no news yet about the cause of death.

I do know the family personally and can say that they do want their privacy, while they know everyone is just wanting to support them-they need only each other at this time and privacy-as anyone if they've lost someone close to them knows that the first state is shock.

This is such a sad story, geoerge was in alice this past weekend and nobody knows anything. Buddy was a neighbor and a good friend to my family and we know nothing. As usual the story is bigger than what really happenend, Ive heard all the rumors, but after living in south texas for 11 years and knowing the way rumours fly, just trust that what u hear aint always what it is. Thay are a great family, he was a good man. My prayers are with them.

As for Buddy's funeral, I just hope for his true friends' sake that they were able to pay their last respects. With no disrespect to his brother,George, whom I am a fan of, I just hope his fans had enough decency to not attend, if they did not personally know the family. Unfortunately, all celebrities has some fans who were beaten at one time in their lives with a stupid stick. So, they are the reason why, if so, there were guards or staff at the Chapel of his funeral to ban true friends of Buddy's and his family as well from attending, not nutcase fans of his brother George who thinks they personally know the family because they have information on the family. There is a difference between knowing someone and knowing about someone.
Mentioning about nutcase fans and funerals, I understand, thanks to them that many cemeteries who has celebrities interred there are now not allowing visitors on the grounds, because they want to harass the graves with items and constant flowers, or if it is a celebrity such as George who lost someone, being his daughter, those fans want to harass them. Let's not forget the paparrazzi, man, they're something else!

To lose a family member
the pain is like no other
especially someone as close
to a sibling and their brother.

I have two brothers of my own
and they still drive me insane
But, I cherish every moment with them
and wish never to feel that pain.

God has a plan for all of us
though we may not understand
you will go through hate and despair
before you take his hand.

Buddy Is now with other loved ones
up in the heavens above
I truly believe that God chose him
because he needed his love.

Loyal Fan since 1985.

I think Jenifer was buried in Pearsall because her mother is from Pearsall.

Buddy and I were best friends in the 7th grade. He kept his horse in the pasture behind mine. We rode a lot together. His father was my Trig teacher. I was shocked to hear of his death today. He came from one marvelous family.

I am sadden of his loss and wished I would have tracked him down last year as I was planning to do. I will miss you and the ole memories of our time together.
