My grandfather William E. Buffington would have been 100 years old today. (10/25/1920 - 8/31/2002)
I like to think I inherited his entrepreneurial spirit and some other traits from him. I have so many questions for him that my younger self didn't even know I should ask. He was always calm and made me feel relaxed and comfortable to be me. I cherish my memories with him and always enjoyed spending time with him.
As the founder of Buffington's Office Equipment in my hometown, I frequently hear others tell me they knew him. If you have any stories of my grandfather you would like to share, please let me know.
