Russell "Bud" Buechele Jr.

July 13, 1953February 21, 2020

Bud was born on July 13, 1953. The only Son of the late Russell Buechele Sr. and Theresa (nee Hoff) Buechele. Proud and loving brother to Sandy (Randy) Guber, Pat Buechele, Barb (John) Jaeschke and Dotty Buechele. Gentle “Holiday” uncle to Bryan (Melissa) Guber, Sarah (Dustin) Hines, Laura (Charlie) Guber, Sarah Jaeschke-Jester and Willie (Margaux) Chandler. Generous and kind great uncle to Peyton and Logan Hines and Liam and Lucy Chandler and Alexa and Ashlyn Guber; dear cousin and friend to all he met.

Bud retired from Malinckrodt Pharmaceuticals just shy of 38 years of dedicated service. He would regularly visit with his “2nd home and family” at Gregg’s Bar and Grill. Bud was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and all around sports fanatic.

A celebration of Bud’s life and legacy will be held at Gregg’s Bar and Grill 4400 N. Broadway St. Louis, MO 63147 on Saturday February 29, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The family request those attending to wear St. Louis Cardinals attire.

I was shocked to hear of Bud's passing. We worked together at Mallinckrodt . He was such a nice guy, and a good listener. R. I. P. Bud. You are not forgotten.

Bud and I had been friends for 60 years. We lived a block and a half from each other and were the two closest to Presentation Church and School when we attended there and were altar boys at the time. Because of this we were selected to serve the early week day mass at 6:30 AM. The priest told us it was a privilege but somehow we knew better. Bud had to beat on my window to wake me up just about everyday. He was always fun to be around and never had a cross word for anyone. We had been meeting with a group from the old neighborhood 3 or 4 times a year for the last couple of years. Just a few beers while reminiscing about days gone by was good for the soul and we all looked forward to getting together. We are one short now with Bud gone and him along with his infectious laugh will be sorely missed.
May he rest in peace.

so sad to lose you so soon. I will always remember the fun days of all of us in the building we worked in together. My heart is sad for the family also. You will not be forgotten. ESTEE
