"Buddy" Gerald Angelo Spry

'Buddy' was born January 3rd, 1966 in Santa Barbara, California. He left this earth to be with the Lord September 29th, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas from a heart attack. He was 52 years old.

Buddy grew up in the Santa Ynez Valley with lots of family and friends.

He played YFL, went to the high school pool or Gaviota beach during the summers.

Buddy graduated from Santa Ynez High School in 1984. He married Sueanne King on December 07, 1991 in Ballard, Ca. They divorced but stayed good friends, even being rommmates in 2016 in Texas.

If anyone knew Buddy, he was the funniest guy around. He enjoyed telling stories and making people laugh. Buddy was also known for his gourmet cooking, boy, he could make food like no one's business!

Buddy loved to fish. He would take all his brothers fishing at Cachuma or his children wherever there was a body of water. They would all have a ball. Buddy was well loved by everyone.

Buddy leaves behind his mother Roslie (Rich) Oden, his ex-wife Sueanne Spry Deszo, five children, Michelle (Branden), Mitchell, Matthew Spry, Rachel Spry, Danielle Spry, Rebecca Spry, three grand-children, Gavin, Josslyn and Jaxon Mitchell. Eight siblings: Tina (Eddie), Hseuh, Janice Spry, Colleen (Mark) Ray, Jami Spry Diaz, Jeremy (Charisse) Spry, Josh Spry, Blane (Kati) Spry, and Lance (Brittany) Spry, numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Buddy was preceded in death by his father Gerald Angelo Spry, grandparents Mario & Dorothy Paola and Leonard & Viola Flowers.

Burial services will be held at Oak Hill Cemetery in Ballard in the spring when his mother is able to travel. We will notify the public so all can come out, tell stories and celebrate Buddy's life.

Buddy, we loved you so deeply that you left a hole in our hearts. But you know what? We wouldn't have had it any other way.
