Condolences may be expressed at

  • Bud was a wonderful friend to all. A friend, a neighbor always show up to help and never turned down when asked. I am so sorry Leslie, Matt, Lisa, April and grandchildren. May he be at peace.

  • On behalf of the family of Joe and Elsie Semon, we are sorry to hear about Bud’s passing. He was a great and dear friend to our dad and mom. And we know he felt the same way about them. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. And may these same thoughts and prayers bring you comfort.

  • My eternally loved Brother in law has been called to Big House. I am sure that all of his big construction toys will greet him. He worked so hard building things, relationships and fellowship that a special place will be already built for him. We will really miss him and my wife’s illness prevents us from being in Ohio. We are at your beckon call for anything and with heavy hearts say Goodbye and we will miss your fish stories.
    Nancy & Richard Quintilone and little Pumpkin.

  • We are so sorry we were not able to make it to the service, Aunt Leslie. Know that our hearts and love are with you. We have only fond memories of Uncle Bud… Sending you strength and peace.
