    We have so many wonderful memories of Bud,Dorothy and the family. All the times we went to the mountains, played cards and just had a great time with everyone. I guess the most wonderful time was when he helped plan the trip to N.C. for the baton group. He had the best ideas for all of us to get to fly around the country with that one trip. We went to San Juan,Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Washington DC and then a side trip for the family, not to mention the actual competition. So many fun times at the Elks Club, always loved watching Bud and Dorothy dance. He was funny, smart and most especially such a family man who was so devoted to his children and wife. We cherish his memory as a beloved friend, He will be missed but never forgotten.

  2. The first time I met Bud in 2006 I fell in love with him-not only did he look like my beloved grandfather he had the same qualities: a family man who was humble but humorous-I don’t trust a man that isn’t humorous-just shared this with Bud’s wife Dorothy the other day.

    My condolences to the whole family.
