Bud and I were classmates at E.M.Holt School and were very close as a pitcher/catcher team. We knew each other for 12 years through school and spent many pleasant hours together after school activities. I am so sad to hear of his passing. My thoughts are with Jo (nee Graves) at this time.

Jo and family, so sorry for your loss. I can remember when Bud would substitute for me at Southern. He thought I was a pistol and I thought he was acharacter as well. I am so glad I got to know both of you. My family and I will be thinking of you.

Jo and family: So sorry to hear about our loss. Bud was a good man. I remember back when I was a kid, we'd go rabbit hunting. He's the main reason I pulled for the NY Yankees and still do. Love you, guys

Bud and I were classmates at Elon University where we developed a friendship which included many pleasant conversations. I had a son about the same age of Scott and shared the grief when Bud and Jo lost their son. We rabbit hunted, played softball, golf and tried to stay in touch over the years. We shared our belief in Jesus as our Lord and Savior and rejoice in knowing that Bud is in a pain free home where he will spend eternity. May God Bless Jo, Sandy and the grandchildren.
