Obituary for Vaughn F. "Buddy" Dabe

VAUGHN F. “BUDDY” DABE, 88, of Springfield, passed away peacefully in his home on Friday evening, December 28, 2018. He was born in Springfield on May 24, 1930, the son of the late Elmer D. and Carmen L. (Cherryholmes) Dabe. In 1988, Buddy retired from Kelsey Hayes SPECO Division following 43 years of dedicated service. He loved fishing and will be remembered for his ability to fix anything. Although he and his wife, Wanda had no children of their own, he loved spending time with his nieces and nephews, whom he treated as his own. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Wanda M. (Reed) Dabe; brothers, Gary (Janifer) Dabe of Springfield and Darwin (Kathy) Dabe of South Vienna; sisters-in-law, Barbara Shirey, Jody Hagerman and Linda Dabe; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by Wanda’s parents, Alice M. and Lindsey Reed and a brother-in-law, John Shirey. Buddy’s funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday in the LITTLETON & RUE FUNERAL HOME with Pastor David Hill officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Burial will be in Rose Hill Burial Park. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
