Sending our deepest condolences to Margaret and the entire family. Bud was such an amazing inspiration with a quiet personality and beautiful sense of humor. He taught both in and out of the classroom often leading thru example. He was respected by many and served with honor. Thank you for your service! God Bless

Please accept our deepest condolences. We have grown close to Bud & Margret over the past couple of years. We enjoyed Bud’s “stories”. He had an awesome sense of humor. We enjoyed ALL of our visits with them both. We will miss Bud and his “quite” ways and humor.
