A good, decent man, and incidentally, not a bad barbershop singer either. He will be sorely missed.

You cannot say "Buzz" Haeger without saying Barbershop in the same sentence. He's been my idol what seems forever and I got to sing with him when the Renegades came to Evergreen many years ago.

My dad sang with his brother "moose" Bob, in the Barber-Q-four and growing up in barbershop my path always crossed with Buzz. My quartets would be singing somewhere and he would engage in helping us, just jump right in and he would know all the parts! I very much miss him for his encouragement, knowledge and his friendship through my years as a barbershopper. I know that many people have be effected by the life of "Buzz" and for me I will miss him as one of my dearest friends.
