Not sure what to say?

Patty, my thoughts are with you and your family. So sorry for your loss.

Cousin Bud was my mother's cousin (Mary Helen O'neill Scholl). Distance kept us from meeting. He is in one corner of the state and I in the other corner ~ Walla Walla to Tacoma Washington. Over the years we kept in touch via the telephone. We talked about his sister who is my Aunt Kay. He was a wonderful man and will be missed greatly.

My love and prayers are with your family during this time. ~ ~ Cousin Pat Scholl Samuelson.

Matt always spoke so fondly of his grandpa and just knowing Matt and Kim I know what kind of heart he had and the kind of people he raised. After reading these entries from people throughout his life my thoughts are further confirmed. My heart broke for you two and especially Patty, Matt's grandma and wife to Bud for so many precious years. Kim hopefully you find yourself surrounded by love and support during this difficult time and Matt I know you had such fond memories with your grandpa,...

So sorry to hear of Bud's passing. He and I had a great relationship in dealing with the purchase of a great amount of sports equipment while I was at Mac-Hi. Bud ways always honest, straight-forward and did all he could to help the schools on their tight budgets. He will be missed greatly.
I am most proud to have known him and his family.

Sincerest sympathy to the Waggoner Family. May Herbert rest in eternal peace.

Nearly 35 years ago, I met Bud when he hired me to work at Cummins Athletic Supply, while I was taking a semester off from college. I'm not really sure he needed another employee, but he and Patty were kind enough to help me out. I have so much respect for Bud, and will never forget his generosity. My thoughts and prayers are with the Waggoner families.

To The Waggoner Family: Very sorry to hear that Bud has passed away. In September, while in Walla Walla, I stopped by and visited with Bud in the Sport Shop. He was a people person and I always enjoyed visiting with him. He often played cards with my late cousin Virgil Criscola. My wife Marcy and I are 1964 DeSales grads. Best Regards
