Bud passed away peacefully at his home on June 21, 2018 at the age of 91. He was born in Worthington, Minnesota to Michael and Lydda Fetcho, the youngest of four children. The family moved to Elk, WA when Bud was seven years old and he grew up on the family farm. After graduating from Riverside High School, he joined the Army and served during WWII. He was aboard a ship bound for the invasion of Japan when the war ended. Bud continued on to Japan where he served as an MP.

Bud went to work at Kaiser Aluminum Mead in 1947 where he worked for 45 years before his retirement. During the 1960s Bud was a Riverside School District board member. He also enjoyed building apartments and duplexes with his brother-in-law, John Powell. He went on to build several homes in the Camelot development. Bud enjoyed rebuilding and working on cars, trucks and tractors after his retirement. Bud and Phyllis were members of the Elk Community Church for a number of years.
