We all loved Bud over the years. Sherry and I were so glad that we could participate in Nancy's 80th Birthday at Colonial Williamsburg along with Bud and the extended family. The funeral service today was lovely. Best wishes to all. Love, Steve Salomon, Bud's brother-in-law who knew him almost as long as Nancy and even drove them to their honeymoon.

ALWAYS with a welcoming big hug and smile on his face, Bud was a KIND, gentle person who modeled service and helping others, which all his children and grandchildren followed. FAMILY was very important and it was a joy to hear him sing. He will be missed by many, many people!
