There are many fond memories I have of Uncle Bud. From riding in one of his boats at the Rez, to walking in the field behind the Old Place in Philadelphia. But when i would get a call from Uncle Bud and Aunt Faye to check on me or to just say hi, it always ment so much! R.I.P. Uncle Bud, you will be missed

Our “Uncle Bud” was such a sweet man, with the most precious smile. He was the best “Little brother” to our mom. Loved his hat collection, cute little jokes, and I just know he’s fishing for catfish in heaven. We love you, You will be missed so much by all of us.❤️😘
