Buzz Around Town

Buzz built his current office at 205 Barnwell Avenue in 1990, directly across from First Presbyterian Church where he married the former Sallye Williams in 1980. Sallye and Buzz have three children – Katey, Warren and Kellen – all graduates of Aiken High School, and six grandchildren and counting.

When Buzz is not assisting his clients with estate planning and probate needs or venturing out into the wilderness – he has scaled glaciers in Montana, driven dogsleds in Minnesota, rafted rivers in Costa Rica, and completed the New York City and Marine Corps Marathons – you can find him boating, fishing, and relaxing with family at his waterfront home on Lake Murray near Lexington, South Carolina. A property too special not to share, Buzz makes the home available to rent through VRBO #57485.
