Dwight ‘Buddy’ Rea

Dwight “Buddy” Rea, 57, of Buncombe, died Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2021, at Herrin Hospital.

He was born on July 28, 1964, a son of Billie Rea and Carol Jones, in Frankfort, Ky.

He will be remembered as a loving son, father and brother. He was hardworking, loyal and funny. 

He had a great amount of skill and knowledge that allowed him to take on any job or task. Buddy took pride in his work and loved working for Endrizzi Contracting Inc. in Vienna. 

He loved riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. He loved his four-legged friends, and was a great “cat dad” to his two beloved cats and “Uncle Bud” to his sister’s silly dogs. He will be missed greatly by everyone who knew him. 

“Dwight Dean Rea, July 28, 1964. We only get one you. There has never been and will never be another you in this world. God doesn’t have a backup plan or replacement policy. We don’t need a copy of someone else, we need the one and only, original you. –Mom”

He is survived by his mother, Carol Jones; a sister, Lisa Rea; a son, Brock Harrison Rea; his close extended family at Endrizzi Contracting; and many other relatives and friends.
