Duane and Buddy, so sorry for the loss of your father. We lived next door to you when you were small and you played with Dale and Jennifer. You and all the family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Every time I think of cousin Bud, he makes me smile...which turns into a laugh. To me he was & will always be the comedian of the family.

My thoughts & prayers go out to his family.

I am so sorry to hear this. I knew Buddy back along time ago in High School when he dated my sister. He was always making jokes and doing funny things to make everyone laugh. May he RIP.

Bud and I worked together for several years on Crew # 1. He was fun to be around and enjoyed exchanging fishing & hunting stories with many guys. Two things, I remember best about Bud was to get your attention walking by he would give out a little " yodel " he liked yodeling followed with a little grin and smile. When smoking was permitted in the lunch rooms and work area, Bud would blow smoke rings in the air. Not just one or two sometimes three or four rings floated in the air followed with that same little grin and smile. He was always willing to help everyone. I'm glad I worked with him and considered Bud a friend. To his wife and family I send my condolences at his passing.
