I have so many fond memories of Uncle Bud, but the most memorable is when he gave me my first train engine and cars. I still have that train the Uncle Bud gave me so many years ago as a young child. I always liked going into the train store and visiting him on Saturdays. Bud was an amazing person who will be truly missed.

I met Bud one Saturday in his store at Wallace Center and started a 30 year friendship. Thru 2 wives, 5 dogs and numerous store assignments one thing in my life remained constant, my friendship with Bud and our shared love of trains. When I had little or no money Bud managed to find me something I could afford to buy and restore. As time past and my income improved he introduced me to my ultimate love, Tin Plate Pre-War Lionel Trains. Most Friday nights meant a visit to his store on Frankfort Avenue to see what was new. I knew that I had "made it" when he invited me to his home for his annual Christmas Party. Kind, thoughtful, friendly are some of the words that come to mind but more than any, friend, ready to offer advice, help or council.

To his wife, son, daughter and all of his family my sincere condolences.
