January 7, 1928 - May 7, 2014 Bud, son of Lou and Rose Meyers and brother of Elaine, was born in Chicago. The family moved to Los Angeles when Bud was eight years old. Here he attended Third Street School, John Burroughs Jr. High, and Los Angeles High School where he played football for the "Romans". He graduated from UCLA and started his business career in the mailroom at the William Morris Agency where he advanced first to secretary and then to agent. After a few years, Bud decided "show biz" was not his calling. He got his real estate license and went to work selling industrial real estate in the South Bay. He was an agent at Ira Garson Associates, Crown Associates and then spent the remainder of his long career at The Klabin Company where he made many lasting friends. He was a member of AIR and SIOR for many years. Bud was respected in his field by both his clients and fellow brokers. "Musts for Murray" included reading the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, watching the evening news, playing the piano, reading both fiction and non-fiction, traveling, weekend forays to the Coffee Bean and enjoying his nightly glass of Chivas Regal on the rocks with a dash of water. Bud is survived by his ex-wife June Meyers with whom he remained good friends, his daughter Leslie Messer-Ward, his grandson Henry Ward, his nephew Bruce Saltzer, niece Janis Gurnick (Keith), great nieces Amy and Suzanne Saltzer and Jenna Gurnick, and great nephew Jason Gurnick. He was predeceased by his sister Elaine Saltzer. He fought the good fight. A memorial honoring Bud is planned for the near future.
