Obituary for Bro. Gale W. "Buddy" Breland

Elder Gale W. (“Buddy”) Breland, 83, of Perkinston, was called home on Thursday, August 23, 2018.
He was born on March 4, 1935, to Gale W. Breland, Sr., and Addie Hover Breland in the Sunflower Community of Stone County. A graduate of Perkinston High School and Mississippi State University, he taught vocational drafting at Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior College until answering a call to pastoral ministry in 1967. For the next 50 years, he pastored numerous churches across south Mississippi and central Louisiana.
Buddy Breland was a man of many talents. He was a teacher, a counselor, a preacher and pastor, a draftsman, an artist, a carpenter and cabinet maker, a gardener, a farmer, and patriarch of the Breland family with encyclopedic knowledge of family lore and history. He was also a “granddad” extraordinaire.
He is survived by his wife Wanda Lynn Bond Breland, his son John M. Breland of Clinton, and his sister Dorothy Rae Ladner of Montgomery, Alabama. Also surviving are three grandchildren, Barrett, Anna and Grant Breland. In addition to his parents, he has today reunited with two sisters, Lois Hatten and Bernice Willison, his daughter Mary Ann Breland, and a grandson, Parker Breland.
A memorial service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 26, 2018, at the Sunflower Baptist Church in Perkinston with burial to follow in the Sunflower Baptist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends on Sunday, August 26, 2018 before the service from 1:30 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Sunflower Baptist Church in Perkinston. Moore Funeral Service in Wiggins is in charge of the arrangements.
