It is with heavy hearts we share that on Friday, February 15, 2019, God called him home and Bud passed away unexpectedly, yet peacefully, of natural causes.

Bud is predeceased by his father Bob and is survived by his mother Elsie, brother Don (Heather), wife Jo-Lynn, daughters Barbara (Peter) and Wendy (Brad) and granddaughter Pyper and a large and loving extended family.

The family extends a heartfelt thank you to all of the first responders and support services that offered quick and compassionate care along with sincere gratitude to Dwight Oatway, Dr. K. Montalbetti, Schoening Funeral Service and the loving support of all of St. Paul's Cathedral clergy. The family is grateful to all those who have given so generously of their love, support and recognition.
