Buzzy Forbess has passed away. Elvis and Buzzy were good friends at Humes High and Elvis’ early days at Sun.
In his freshman year of high school Elvis teamed up with three friends, Buzzy Forbess, Paul Dougher and Farley Guy, to start a lawn business. With a push lawn mower that his father, Vernon, purchased for him, and a few sickles, Elvis and his team mowed yards at the cost of $4.00 per yard.
Over the years Buzzy was interviewed in various newspaper, magazine and Elvis television documentary specials, contributed to several books and helped inspire an upcoming book about Elvis’ appearance at the Grand Ole Opry.
