Uncle Bud was one of the most sincere, honest, humble men I have ever known. I have very fond memories of him including his Hi-ya wave he would always do. I also wanted to share what my mother had to say about him when I sent her the obituary: He was always kind, intelligent and had a gentle spirit. He & Faye were absolutely the easy to get along with in the family and the most fun. I felt home with them. I think that was the case because they welcomed me the most and were always respectful of me as a person. Uncle Bud, you will be forever loved and remembered.
