Bernard "Bud" Heumann Obituary
November 8, 1923 - July 12, 2015 Bud passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, July 12, surrounded by loved ones. He lived a rewarding and full life in his 91 plus years, filled with family, friends, love and laughter. He is survived by his wife, Patricia Rosenburg, sons Jim and Peter (Deborah) Heumann, his beloved granddaughter Samantha and great-granddaughter Ella; as well as his step children Cathy (Rob) Seligman, and Debbie Zeitman; step grandchildren Matthew Seligman, Anthony Fedorko, and Andrea and Eric Zeitman; extended family and many friends. Bud was predeceased by Mickee, his wife of 60 years, grandson Ryan, brother Mike and parents, Edna and Monroe. Bud was born and raised in Los Angeles, graduating from LA High School. He served his country during WWII in the Army Air Corps, both in the US and Europe. He followed his father's path and was successfully involved in the men's apparel industry for many years. Bud served on many boards related to the clothing business, as well as involving himself in the community. He gave both time and talent to numerous boards and commissions benefiting the city of Beverly Hills. In his leisure time, nothing was more enjoyable than days in his Cabana with his family at the Sand and Sea Club. He considered it remarkable that his final years were spent living at the beach he loved so much. He looked forward to the one day every week when he volunteered at Cedars Sinai, and found it a source of great inspiration. But perhaps his greatest joy (after family) was being able to employ his lifelong talent and love of art to become an accomplished sculptor in his later years. A gallery exhibit of his work coinciding with his 90th birthday was one of the highlights of his life. Bud was a man of great integrity, humor and generosity, who loved life and cherished his family and friends. He was a "man's man", but men and women alike were equally drawn to his warmth and wonderful personality. Bud was a devoted family man, and considered himself "the luckiest man on earth" to have known great love twice in his life, having just celebrated his 8th anniversary to Patricia. He was truly a "Man For All Seasons". Bud was loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was one of the Greats of the Greatest Generation. He will always be remembered for his generous spirit. Memorial Services will be held at Hillside Memorial Park on Friday, July 24th at 11AM. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to the UCLA Blood Mobile Fund (Contact Linda Goss at (310) 985-0223; or to .
