1.
A close friend who, in the event of your death, will remove any and all embarassing personal items from your home you do not wish family to see. i.e. Pornography, sex toys or drug paraphernalia. The shovel buddy is allowed to keep or destroy these items and is ideally alerted by a loud horn.

Steve told Preston, his shovel buddy, where he hid his porn so that if he died he could remove it from his house.
