Glen native Buddy Kemp loves getting out on the water. “I love fishing and boating,” said Kemp, who turns 56 next week. “We’ve got a house boat at Pickwick, and me and my wife love it.” When he doesn’t have a fishing pole in his hand, Kemp can be found at Corinth City Hall, where he has served as security guard for almost five years, or at Magnolia Funeral Home, where he has worked part-time for the last 16 years. Kemp said he finds joy in opportunities to serve others. “At City Hall, I enjoy meeting people and helping them,” he said. “With the funeral home, it really makes a person feel good when a family calls you and wants you to take care of a family member.” Kemp and Lil, his wife of 31 years, have two children.
