Walter Alexander Londenberg, Jr.

FAIRVIEW - Walter Alexander Londenberg, Jr. (Buddy) of Asheville, NC, passed away on April 28, 2023. He was 85 years old. Buddy was preceded in death by his parents, Walter Alexander Londenberg, Sr. and Della Belle Tennant Londenberg; and his wife of 30 years, Susie Foster Londenberg.

Surviving are his children; Susie Winterling (Mike), Buddy Londenberg (Shelby), and Belinda Webb.  He is also survived by four grandchildren; Joshua, Alex, Rachael and Paige; seven great-grandchildren; and a sister, Tina Keith of Atlanta, Georgia.

Buddy started his trade in woodwork with his beloved father "Pop" at Londenberg & Son Cabinet Shop located at 5 Old Burnsville Hill Road. A very proud man and master carpenter, his impeccable craftsmanship and work ethic earned him respect among the construction community that followed him his entire career.  Buddy was considered a “helluva” builder.

He cherished the great outdoors and had a love for all wildlife, especially a good 10 or 12-point buck. There was nothing that brought greater joy than an off-trail hike in the woods with a picnic lunch. He was no happier than when he was on the lake in his boat with a fishing pole in his hands, anticipating another bite.

His enjoyment of being outdoors and doing yard work, mowing for the entire neighborhood, weeding, spraying, and everyone's favorite, “burning a brush pile fire”, will be forevermore missed because only a Londenberg could do it the "right way"!

Buddy had many remarkable lifelong friends whose kindness will forever be remembered. We want to thank all of the healthcare providers for their compassion and care.

Buddy was a beloved father, loved husband, loyal friend, kind brother, uncle, and a true perfectionist; he will be forever remembered and missed.
