Barry Lawrence Buddington, 85, of Saugerties, New York passed away on Thursday, November 24, 2022, after a brief illness and heart attack.
Barry was born on June 25, 1937, in Kingston, New York to Mildred Pardee Buddington and Alwyn Buddington. After graduating from Kingston High School in 1955, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was trained as an electronics technician.

After four years in the U.S. Navy, Barry worked for Ferroxcube and then joined the IBM Corporation for a long career at the IBM Chip Manufacturing in Fishkill, New York, retiring in 2002.
Upon retirement, he spent much of his time continuing with his beer brewing, building an occasional ship model, and did a great deal of woodworking and cabinetry. He and Amy also enjoyed traveling as often as they could, where he would take many lovely pictures.
On June 26, 1965, Barry married the love of his life, Amelia (Amy) Bradley. Amy predeceased him two months ago after 58 years of marriage. Barry is survived by two sons, Bryan B.
