In the fall of 1962, Bob Warhurst and Buddy Williams met for the first time. Buddy was working as a fireman and living with his wife and their three children on the family’s historic property in Vienna, Virginia, and the Warhurst family had recently moved in just down the road. One day, Bob rode his Pinto horse bare-back down the one-lane dirt road to introduce himself to the Williamses. They immediately formed a bond, which would eventually grow into a lifelong friendship and business partnership.
