    Oh my heart is broken to hear such sad news. The last time we talked, he said he wasn’t doing very well, and I really thought we would talk again. We will miss him. His infectious laugh, his wonderful craftsmanship, his love of family and friends. The world has truely lost a great man. Go forth good and faithful servant to the loving arms of your maker. Till we meet again. Terry and Beth

    What can I say about Bud? He was a very good and generous man that it was my privilege to know. I will continue to carry and retell the humorous stories that he had for every occasion and miss him a lot. So Rest In Peace my friend and say hello to your golfing uncle Arnie for me.

    We are so sorry to learn of “Buddy’s” passing! We always remembered him with a smile. We attended church with him & Margaret years ago. The church friends would gather at their fish camp on the river for great fellowship & food!
