A Legendary Loss
It is with heavy hearts, we bid farewell to fellow waterman, legendary boat builder, founder, and friend. Captain B.C. Buddy Cannady passed away this morning. Captain B.C. was a driving force in the growth of the Dare County Recreational Charter Fishing industry, bringing about the waterman's way of life for many here on the Outer Banks. Captain B.C. left deep marks on the boatbuilding industry here in Dare County and beyond, with boaters for many years to come benefiting from his influence.
Captain B.C. will be greatly missed and the Management and Crew of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center will remain ever grateful for his founding influences and extend our sympathies to his daughter, Melodye Cannady Callaway and his grandchildren, Buddy Callaway, Lillie Callaway Leavel, and great grandson, William Leavel. Captain B.C. also leaves behind many extended family members.
