The Ocracoke community was shocked this morning to learn of the death of Buffy Warner, owner, with his wife, Anne, of Howard's Pub. His body was discovered just after midnight aboard his yacht. He had fallen down the stairway. Buffy was 53 years old, and is survived by his wife and two children, ages 10 & 12, as well as several older children who do not live on the island.
Funeral services will be held Monday at the Ocracoke United Methodist Church.
