Bud is my great-great Uncle and I will miss his cheery smile, genuine laugh and his kindness. Thanksgiving 2018 was the last time I shared dinner with Bud, and he was the only family member to eat my homegrown kale salad. And that sums Bud up to me --- always a little more kind and engaging than he had to be. I cherish the time I got to spend with him, and he will be very missed.

Bud was our neighbor for so many years. A nice man with a smile on his face. In the front yard talking to anyone that would pass by. He was a good man and it was an honor to have known him. Rest easy we will miss you.
