Bud you are Greatly Missed.You were a Wonderfull Friend.Had alot of Good Times especially in the Summer sitting out in the Yard with you.RIP
My Dearest Bud. I am so happy that I met you 38 years ago. You were an insperation to my life immediatly. I have alaways thought the world of you. You came into my life when I needed a dad, you were'nt my dad I know, but you ran a close first. You took me under your wing, and never once judged me, and I grew to love that about you. Not one time have I heard you say one thing negitive about your children, only good and loving. I am so honor to have taken care of you from the start, to the end of your journey. You were always so happy, and forth right, giving everyone the benefit of the doubt, without doubting them at all. You, other than my own dad, are my hero, and I knew that (the instant you chased me to that gate), (I will never forget it)because that is when we bonded,(1974), in my 1969 1/2 Mustang. OMG you chased me right back to the gate, I loved you since then. I was very honered that you took me on, and allowed me to call you "Dad",and I sure did. You have 4 wonderful children, and now I am taking care of your wonderful Delores, she is missing you terribly in her heart, and I know that. She will go on untill she will see you again. My Daddy, and my Grandson, Royal Christian are with you now, please watch over them, as you did me. My happy, always smileing man. I will never forget you, nor, will I ever stop loving your family. Truly yours always. Cari Jo Mello: aka, Cari Jo Gaub
With fondest memories, Love you always and forever!
Dad, your passing has been the hardest thing I've ever experienced. Your celebration of life turned out wonderful. We put together an unforgettable slide show of memories throughout the years! The turnout was amazing, just like you. I will never forget all the great times we had. You were the best dad ever. I will never forget you. I want to thank you for teaching me every thing that you did through the years. I'm happy to have had you in my life for so long. Not everyone gets to have their parents grow old. I so enjoyed all the laughter, the bowling leagues, the parties, just the every day spending time together. I love you with all my heart and always will. I will never forget the memories we made. Nor will I forget how happy you were all the time. When going through the pictures for the slide show, you were smiling in almost all of them. Just shows how happy and what a great life you had. And I'm proud to have been such a big part of it. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you, and I truly miss you terribly. I'm trying to be strong for mom, because she is pretty lost. We all are. Just trying to adjust until we are together again. Thank you for being there for all of us always. You are truly the most amazing man I ever met. You are so loved. It broke my heart to watch you go, but knowing you are no longer suffering is comforting. We will always love you and the memories we shared will be held in my heart forever. Until we meet again, God Bless You!! Love, from your daughter, Bitsy, aka Gloria Ruuth

Dear Dolores and Family... I was so terribly sad when I heard about Bud's passing.
