I just heard yesterday about Bud’s passing and wanted to send a note. I had the honor of knowing Bud and have memories of camping, playing horseshoes, BBQ’s and bowling with him and the rest of the family. He always seemed happiest when his family and friends were around. He and Mary had great backyard BBQ’s and Christmas dinners - you could always find him with a smile, a laugh and a sparkle in his eyes. I always admired him for his ability and willingness to help with anything you needed – anytime, anywhere. Although he will be dearly missed, we have all gained an angel to watch over us. Sending heartfelt prayers and hugs to all of you. Sharon

What you mean to me.....

The lessons I learned from dad is make a commitment, work hard, and be passionate to your ideas you believe in and don't be afraid to take chances in life to make that happen. Dad at times was reserved when giving his opinion on a subjects, but when he did have an opinion “watch out” you are not going to change his mind. He was a jack-of-all trades. He was the go-to-guy when you needed help to fix something. Thank God we have google now. You know he would always be there for you, all you had to do was ask. When I think of Dad now I think of his good nature, his smile, and always enjoying a good laugh. Dad you will be forever in my heart and greatly missed. Until we met again!

My Dad and I had an up and down relationship through parts of my life, but I know he always loved his children. As a kid I loved all the camping and fishing trips, he even took his daughter hunting, and of course I was the only one who shot a deer that weekend :) I was Daddy's little girl until I got to my rebellious teenage stage. Now that I look back, I'm not sure if stubborness is a trait, but I'm pretty sure I inherited it from him ;) The thing about Dad is he had funny ways of showing his love. He never said it out loud to me from what I can remember, until the last couple years of his life. But looking back it was always his actions speaking louder than his words ever could. Throughout my 20's & 30's he was always the first person I called when something was sounding "funny" on my truck, he was always ready to help me with some crazy estate cleanout and sit there and pack glassware for hours, if something broke in my house he would be right over to help me out. I know he had a hard time with not being able to "do stuff" anymore as he got older, but he had his wits all the way until the end, his advice will be truly missed, even when he had to add in "extra" remarks about my decisions in life ;) I do know I wouldn't be the person I am today without his lessons of hard work, family and faith. Love you Dad, see you on the other side

Dad I grew up on the farm. I remember working together putting up hay and picking rocks. I know we went through sad times and happy times. I learned to be strong because of your love and strength . I remember the fishing and trips to the lake and playing ball with us kids. I know in the last 30 years we didn’t get to see much of each other. I was so blessed to have you as my dad. Love you and you will be missed. Beckie

Dad. Thanks for all the great memories growing up: from camping, cutting grass together, fishing together. You taught me how to be strong, but also compassionate; work hard, but also take a break. You taught me about my faith, you helped to take care of me during my illness. I loved your visits to St. Louis, and our trips to Branson and Florida. We had a lot of good times together.
