Bud was an outgoing person with a kind heart. Willing to help where and whenever needed. An
easy going spirit with an infectious smile. A bit of a teaser who could leave most of us crying in
laughter, even at our own expense. He had an ingenious mind and creative gift to try and
improve old things as well as invent new ones.
Bud will always be a lover of Nature, Music and the Beach. He will be greatly missed by those
who knew him, those who met him and those who loved him, and remain in our hearts forever.
