Dear Family On the very first day June 15, 2013 when Ann and I moved into Legion Village we were warned, "Look out for 'Bud'. He could clobber you with his stick." So we looked out for Bud in a good way. He became my good friend. Bud and I had identical Arnold Palmer golf shirts and when we wore them at the same time we said, "Hey, Bud we're twins." Bud would wander in from Kelly's and before I knew his last name I thought it might be "Wiser". Of course, Janice was his "girlfriend" and one day he slipped and called her his "wife". We never made fun of him. He'd had enough of that in his life. May God sustain you all and by the way, just like #99, I have retired my golf shirt.

Pat Kelly - July 24, 2021

My sincere condolences to Bud's family on his passing. Bud was well loved by both the residents and staff at Legion Village. He was always so excited to tell me about a winning Blue Jay game (or a losing one!) and to remind me to get gas before I went home because the price was going up, always eager to help wherever he could. You'll be missed, Bud. Rest well.
