Louis Chapman, Jr.

Louis Davis (Buddy) Chapman Jr. passed away on February 13, 2023. He was born May 19, 1948, to Louis Davis Chapman Sr. and Elizabeth Prince Chapman in Crowley, Texas.

He attended his early education in Crowley, TX and graduated from Burleson, as Crowley did not have a High School. He remained close to his school friends for his entire life.

Buddy served in the US Army & National Guard. He honorably served the country that he loved, as a Vietnam Veteran. He was a 32nd degree Mason in the Masonic Lodge, a Shriner and a Past Master of the Crowley Lodge.

He attended college in agricultural management and worked in the industry for many years. He was a licensed journeyman electrician, until his death. He was always available to help a friend with electrical or other needs. 

Buddy’s hobbies included scuba diving, motorcycle riding, carpentry, being an active patron of the local theater in Whitney, Bosque County & Cleburne, and probably his favorite, Cowboy Action Shooting. Cowtown Jack, as he was known in the shooting community, was a Lifetime Member of the Single Action Shooters Society. He was a Lifetime Member of The Texas Historical Shooter Society, a Lifetime Member of the Texas Rifle Association and National Rifle Association, a Lifetime Member of the local SASS clubs: Comanche Valley Vigilantes and The Lone Star Frontier Shooting Club. He held several positions within these local clubs including Secretary, Treasurer, Range Officer, and probably his proudest; Chaplin for both clubs.

Many have heard Buddy Chapman (AKA Cowtown Jack) say: “There are three kinds of people in this world, Those that Make things happen, Those that WATCH things happen and those who say “What Happened”… I don’t want to be either of the last two.” Don’t worry, you were not.

Buddy is survived by his wife, Molly; daughters, Colleen and husband Joe and Jo Lynn and husband Richard; grandson, Mason; son, Mike and wife Caitlin; daughter Jeanette and husband Lukas; sister, Dottie and husband Jon; nephew, Drew and Megan and daughter Dottie; and one of the loves of his life, his faithful feline companion, Miss Kitty.

During his life he met many people and made lasting friendships. Per Buddy’s wishes, he did not want a service.  He would wish each of his friends to remember him for what he brought to their lives, as his friends meant so much to him.
