August 30, 1938 — September 28, 2019

Lloyd E. “Buddy” Wade, 81, passed away on Saturday, September 28, 2019, at WMHS Regional Medical Center.

Born on August 30, 1938, in Cumberland, he was the son of the late Lloyd H. and Margaret E. (Aldridge) Wade.

Buddy was Episcopal by faith. Following graduation, he attended Cathermans’s Business School and was employed at Glass Services, Inc.   He was a member of the Mt. Savage Fire Department where he served as Chaplain, a member of the Allegany and Garrett County Fire Association and the Fire Police.

He enjoyed woodworking and loved making anything from wood, especially canes and candle boxes.  He was an amazing man and was a second father to many. Buddy never met a stranger.

In accordance with his wishes, Lloyd was cremated.
