Born May 28, 1926 in New Brunswick, NJ, Bud spent his childhood and early teens in New Brunswick and North Brunswick. At the age of 17, Bud left high school to enlist in the U.S. Navy. He served during WWII in the Pacific Theater. He was very proud to be in the U.S. Navy and of his military service.

After the war Bud went to trade school to study television repair. His education was on going as he attended countless seminars and classes to keep up with the technology as it advanced. Beginning after he completed trade school and ending at his retirement, Bud worked for several small NJ furniture and appliance stores, repairing televisions and the electronics of the day.

Bud enjoyed socializing with his neighbors and hobbies which included tropical, coy and goldfish, HO and N gauge model trains and building models of Navy ships. He enjoyed watching football, baseball and professional wrestling. He was active in, his son, Buddy's Boy Scout Troop and at one point became Scout Master of Middlesex's Troop 45.

In the mid to late eighties his family began to grow again, eventually expanding to include 8 grandchildren.
