In memory of
After a long illness Robert Edward "Buddy" Estis, a lifetime resident of Tanner Williams, passed away in his home surrounded by his family early Sunday morning (4/5). He was proceeded in death by his parents Dupree and Dorthey Estis and adopted parents Luttrell and Minnie Middleton, sister Lanell Cochran (Ronald), brother Lamar Estis (Janet), and sister Margaret Estis. He is survived by his wife of fifty-two years, Donna (Nee Hamilton), his daughters Robin Gordon (Tommy) and Rhonda Watson (Eric), his three granddaughters Hayley Johnson (Alex), Delaney Watson, and Ryley Gordon. And one brother Talmadge Estis (Celia). Buddy was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He enjoyed dove hunting, fishing, camping with his friends, and traveling. He told great stories to the grandkids and was a voracious reader, he liked action movies, the louder the better. He will be missed, and the world will be a little quieter without him. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
