We were sure sorry to hear of your loss but know he no longer has to face the difficulties of this world. We never met but know of Bud through Ramona, Rick, Jessica and William. We feel like we are part of your family and share your grief and prayers.

We are sad to hear of your loss. Your entire family is in our thoughts and prayers.

I remember Dewey (Bud), from the time he came to work around our pool. What a pleasure he was, always smiling and upbeat. Larry, enjoyed so much talking with him, and hearing his many interesting stories. He was past retirement at that time but, could still accomplish more in a day than we could in 3 or 4 days. Cheers! to a life well lived. Rick, you and family, are in my thoughts and prayers in your time of grief. Sincerely, Phyllis Maher

So very sorry to hear of your families loss. May you all find peace and comfort in knowing he is with our Lord. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful photos & nice to see he was here to enjoy his great grand baby. May peace be with you in this difficult time.

I was so saddened to hear of your father's death. I remember him well, and what a fine man he was and how kind he was to help us with pool needs. I am so glad that Ramona called and let me know. I pray for God's comfort for you all in your loss, and once again, I am very sorry.

May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead.
Susan and Andrew Piotrowski

With Deepest Sympathy, Ralph & Ruth Settlemyre and Family ( Bud's 1st Cousin)

the sweetest man in the world....who loved miss carolyn with all his heart. RIP
