I’m sure Tom, Jane and Marie have many treasured memories of Uncle Bud. I shall always remember him as one of Fall River’s finest, he was truly one of the greatest generation. He was a quiet, unassuming person who was always present for the “wakes and weddings.” A gentleman always but no one could sing an Irish ballad with greater gusto than Bud. He had a quiet air about him, a true Irish wit and an ever present twinkle in his eye. We shall all miss him but are better for having known him..
