Herman W. Malone “Buster”, 68, of Greeneville, passed away Wednesday, October 6, 2021 at Johnson City Medical Center. A message to our father: The angles gathered near your side so very close to you, for they knew the pain and suffering you were going through. We thought about so many things as we held tightly to your hand, oh how we wished you were strong and happy once again, but your eyes were looking homeward to that place beyond the sky were Jesus held his outstretched arms it was time to say goodbye. Not goodbye forever but only for now. We will make it to you in Heaven, we solemnly vow. We love you daddy. Words simply cannot describe the many talents this man had. Rebuilding muscle cars to building houses from the ground up. Buster worked at Lawsons for several years until around 1996. He taught many people a lot of things. He was a true Jack of all Trades.
