Bud was a cable splicer by trade, and worked for GTE for many years. He traveled extensively to many states while working for Fishel. He was known for his wisecracks, geographic, and trivial knowledge. Bud had coached pony league baseball, and was an umpire for adult league softball, during which time he made many friends in the Delaware community. He enjoyed playing cards with family and friends, soduku puzzles, and OSU. Most of all, Bud enjoyed spending time with his family.

  • So sorry for your loss. I have wonderful memories of Buddy from middle school and high school. Class of 68. Prayers for you all.

  • Very sorry to hear of Bud’s passing. I have many good memories of our childhood days. Seems like we were always playing baseball. I always admired his abilities on the field.
    Rest in peace old friend.

  • Our sympathies and condolences to the family. So many childhood memories
    come to mind in remembrance of Buddy! Trips to Hultz’s drugstore for an ice cream cone and playing baseball behind the library. Buddy was always one of the first
    ones chosen when we chose up sides. If you hit a ball in Taylor’s yard it was an
    automatic home run. We couldn’t retrieve it!

    Rest in peace, Bud Your old pals,
    Dan and Scott Selanders

  • I’m so sorry to hear about Buddy’s passing. We kids used to ride in the gravity wagons getting from the fields on Cackler road over to the house on Leonardsburg road. The cousins spent time every summer like that, making memories. So sorry for the loss of your Dad.

  • I’m so sorry to hear of Buddy’s passing. My prayers and Aloha to his family.
    Back in the day, like 60 years ago, Buddy used to hang out in Ashley and often came to my Mom and Dad’s grocery store, The Royal Blue. He would help me sort and crate empty pop bottles that customers brought in to get their deposit back, rebag 100 lb bag potatoes to 10 lb bags and even help carry out customers groceries to their cars. He was like the little brother I never had. I am from the Elm Valley class of ‘63. It was great to reconnect with Buddy a few years ago, thanks to Bob Howard.
    God Bless and May he Rest In Peace.

  • Buddy was a great baseball player. We played together on the Ashley Little League team, later the Pony League team, and finally for the Kilbourne Colt league team. Buddy was a great athlete. He was our starting pitcher and shortstop in all those leagues as we grew up and improved. Believe it or not, he was actually a fast runner!
    Buddy was good. In many ways. He was never a bully. He was kindhearted. He was always loyal to his fellow Ashley and Buckeye Valley friends. I was his catcher those years his brother Ed moved on to the next higher level. He was my friend. And, I his.

    I find it charming that Bud’s ashes will join his brother, Ed’s. (Sigh)
    They loved each other.
    Rest in Peace.
    And, may your body be rejuvenated.
    Bobby
