It was a pleasure working for Bud at North American Aviation-Space Division. Bud was great to work for and always made sure that those who worked for him were well taken care of. Rest in peace Bud!

We attended Wreaths Across America and our five year old daughter chose this hero to honor. We came home to search his footprint in life and what an incredible life this true American hero lead. We honor and remember Mr. Mahurin during this holiday season and always. Many blessings to his family and friends who loved and miss him. We thank him for his dedicated service. God bless you all.

Bud was the guy who could talk to anyone,regardless of who they were.
I feel very fortunate to have met Bud .
I can remember calling him back in the late eighties and telling him I was building a half size flying replica of the Spirit Of Atlantic City P-47 that he flew.
He was thrilled so much that he and his wife Joan came to my home in NJ to see the project and he even sat in it.
I worked with his wife Joan to put together a surpise for him,presenting with his POW medal at the FAA Tech Center Near Atlantic City,NJ.
I was fortunate enough to fly down to DC in my Arrow,Pick Bud up and fly with him back to the center.
Wow what a thrill and honor.
We put together a video for him.
It was the history of the Spirit Of AC,plus Buds history.
This took sometime but it was worth the effort to see his face.

Later I did a painting depicting Bud,and some of his WWII buddies that was done for the 56th Fighter Group Reunion we did for them at the Tropworld,Casino in AC.
I also was able to get the Mayor at the time Jim Whealn to give him the key to the city.
This was in conjuction with the fact that Bud flew the Spirit Of AC P-47
that they bought during the war bond drive during WWII
We met a couple times at the Baltimore Harbor,where and Joan visited when doing Virginia Bader art events.
Bud loved Chris Craft boats and Midget race cars.
I will forever have fond memories of Bud,and will so many others.
If I had the computer savy to share my photos of Bud I would.
Reading his book "Honest John" I would say is one you should read.
He was a true "ACE" and a great friend
