Charles “Buddy” Leonard Roberson, 89, of Mooresville, NC went home to Glory on Sunday, August 27, 2023, after a short battle with cancer.

Buddy worked in the grocery business his entire career and retired as the Head Buyer for Ingles Markets after 24 years.  He enjoyed playing golf, gardening, watching sports, spending time with family and socializing with his friends at Terra Bella.   He maintained a positive attitude up until his last breath.
