Charles "Buddy" Ray Gullett

June 19, 1948 — January 10, 2020

Charles ”Buddy” Ray Gullett, 71 of Rice, VA was called home to Jesus on January 10, 2020. He was born on June 19, 1948 to the late Junior and Constance Mae Gullett in Cleveland, Ohio, but grew up in West Virginia and Baltimore, Maryland. At age 19, Buddy joined the U.S. Navy and served his country during the Vietnam War as a tugboat mechanic. His greatest loves in life were the Lord, his family and friends, his place at Lake Chesdin, trying out new recipes, and a night out singing karaoke. He was a member of Trinity Gospel Church where he served as a minister of the Gospel and was part of The GloryBound Gospel Singers. With everyone he encountered and touched, Buddy never met a stranger which was evident if you ever heard his favorite quote, “I love this old world”.
