Breeze, you made everything you were around better because of your outgoing infectious personality. When you came in a room I knew it was going to be fun. I keep thinking about you jumping a ramp at vous on a tricycle and thinking what a nut! Your batteries never seemed to run out except on your bike! God bless you, Shayna and Bryleigh and all the Buff family and friends prayers to you for such a great loss. WFFW

To the Buff Family, Shayna andBrynleigh. I am so sorry to hear of Donnie's passing. My condolences to you in this difficult time. Donnie was my trainer while I worked for Belmont Correctional. His training and expertise made me into the Corrections Officer I am today at Licking County Sheriffs Dept. He ALWAYS treated me with respect and like we were friends "forever" and whenever I needed anything or questions....he was there. Thank you for allowing me to experience and know a truly GREAT MAN...GOD bless you all.

To the Buff family, Shana and Stoney. May God be with you all at this tragic time in your lives. Buff Daddy as I always called him touched so many lives in his short time here on earth and everybody was that much better for knowing him. He always kept me laughing when we would see each other and probably was the funniest person I have met. I'm so glad that I could call him a friend. RIP my friend until we all see you again, you will be forever in our hearts and minds. We love you buddy. Rusty and Barbara Cunningham

There are very few people you meet in life that can have a profound impact on the way you think, the way you act, and the way you conduct yourself on a daily basis. Donnie you were that guy for me. Since the first time we ever spoke, I always told myself that I needed to be more like you. I spent time with you in the gym, SWAT training, and other places and I've never once heard you say a negative word about anyone. You made me a better person, you had that rare ability to bring everyone up to your level and make everyone around you better. It's a mark of a true leader and a true gentleman. I'm proud to call you my friend, always have been, always will be. We never ended a conversation without you saying "I love ya brother". I pray I earned your respect as well because all I've ever wanted as former teammates, was for you to trust me no matter what awaited us on the other side of that door. I'm gonna miss you old friend. I love you brother, and I'll see you on the other side. Barry

I first meet Donnie when he was hired into BeCi ( a baby face boy at 24 ) he worked in the mail room when I transferred. I can still see his face and hear his laugh and he was all about giving Bear Hugs. The news of his departure fell heavy on my heart, and the memories flooded back of how he was when I meet him. My deepest sympathy goes to the Family . And the Family he left behind that knew him as a friend, co-worker and the Warthogs Brother. R I P Brother

I always thought of Donnie as a big brother, although we are about the same age. He was always everybody's friend. I remember sitting with him at our 10 year high school reunion at the Lewis Wetzel Center. I always enjoyed viewing his Facebook posts and the antics of his pal Stoney. Shayna , may his smile always be on your mind and his love in your heart. Brynleigh, your dad was one of the best people on this earth. I hope all the best for you and to grow up, just like your dad.

Words are hard to come by for the loss an extraordinary man, like Donnie. I met him in high school many years ago. He was ornery as anything, but had a heart of gold. As others have shared, once you met him, you were a friend for life. His wild ways of living life to its fullest,everyday, should be our mantra now, as a tribute to the man we all knew and loved. Fly high, Donnie, and thank you for showing us all how we should live and love life like there is no tomorrow. Our sincerest condolences to the Buff family, many, many friends and little Stoney. Love and prayers to all.

Carolyn L. Jack Dunfee posted on 2/9/16

Donnie, Judy, Brynleigh, Shayna and Stoney, I am so saddened over the terrible tragedy that took the life of your precious, son, dad and your boyfriend. I am forever grateful that I knew Donnie since he was born, what an awesome little guy he was when he attended Sunday School, always so polite and friendly, he grew into a great teenager, so popular in school, I believe he was King twice in school. Then he went on to do a job that he loved, working at the prison and I would say he was very kind to the prisoners. All of the training he had to protect people, living life to the fullest. Member of the Warthogs, a very worthwhile organization. Becoming a daddy I would say was the greatest gift that God gave him, he loved his little girl. He saved Stoney to keep him alive nurturing him when the little guy did not have a mommy to care for him, I would say that is a gentle Giant, Stoney was an orphan and Donnie took him to live with him, I loved to see his pictures on facebook. I sent Donnie a picture of an old country guy dancing with his raccoon, it was so darn cute, I asked Donnie if he thought he and Stoney could dance like that and he said, probably with a little practice. His beautiful love of his life came into his world ten years ago, what a lovely couple, I know they had an unconditional love. They loved each other dearly. He was his mom and dad's pride and joy and he was so blessed to say hey, that is my mom and dad, he even had Mom tattooed on his chest, what does that tell you. You all have wonderful memories, please cling to them and never forget how much he loved all of you and how much you loved Donnie. God Bless you and call upon our Lord and Saviour to help you with your loss. RIP our sweet Donnie D. Buff. Our little town loves you to the moon and back.

I can honestly say that if my time were to come may it be treated with respect love and true friendship. I recently posted of the passing of a good friend and co-worker Don Buff. As I had stated he was and always will be One of the Good Guys taken to early but will always be remembered for his love of life living every day to the fullest. May his family know Godly strength and love in this time of need.

I remember one of my first memories of Donnie. I was in grade school at Powhatan Elementary and Judy had brought him to school. Donnie was a stocky little guy with a head full of curly hair. He was a rambunctious little guy then, which carried him thru his life. Donnie was a gentle, loving soul, who knew no strangers and everyone loved him. Remember all the good times you shared with him, be proud of him. Donnie D will be missed by all. May God Bless your family and hold you tight in his loving arms
