  • May your family find the same comfort that the lord has provided for Bud. Fly high with the Angels that have flown before you. Childhood memories forever will remain. Rest in peace Bud. Love, Kel

  • Bud, you are a great man. I am glad I knew you and am glad I got to see the love people had for you, especially Lisa and Amy. When I would meet people who knew you, all of them would talk about your kind heart, your smile and your laugh. Rest in peace and “play through”.

    Dave and Lisa

    • Thank you, Dave! Lisa, thanks for your visits! I don’t need to tell you how much you meant to your dad. He loved you so much! Don’t be a stranger. Stop by anytime!

  • Nancy and Family,

    We are so sorry for your loss. Bud was always friendly and happy and was fun to play golf with.
    He had a great smile and had an easy laugh. I know he had suffered for a number years but is now in peace so I hope that gives you all comfort.
