Buzzy Contrerio

Buzzy Contrerio

Buzzy Contrerio was one of first Deaf people in the Washington, D.C., area to pass away to AIDS. This was around 1988.  Buzzy’s real first name was Leo.  He was my neighbor and he loved to walk his tiny dog everyday.  He graduated from Michigan School for the Deaf around 1968.
