Not sure what to say?

Dear Mary and family, We are so sorry to hear of Bud's passing, he was always so much fun and did so much for Lions and his community. I know how much Dad respected and loved him, Sally and Jim Bedell

I have so many fond memories of Bud growing up in Osseo. He always made me feel special. He would put his arm around me and ask "how's my Patty?". A lot of teasing, too. I will keep Bud & his family in my prayers. Patty Wishy Clayton

There will be a large void in Osseo without Bud. My parent's (Dick & Bonnie Osterberg) were good friends with Bud. Mom always looked forward to when Bud would come into the restaurant where she worked. He put a smile on everyone's face. I have vivid memories as a youngster going to my father's softball games when Steven played with my father and Randy Dalluge. Bud was always at the games and tournaments cheering on King's Bar. Our condolence to all the Setzler family.

me and my grandpa, i was 1 year old at the time!

I'm going to miss my grandpa so much, he was one of the nicest grandpa's a kid could have. I'm going to miss him cracking my knuckles when i came to see him. Love your granddaughter annie

We have such wonderful memories of Bud. Even our kids had the opportunity to know him and get their share of coins. I will miss hearing him say "well, it's the Michaelis girl" when I would see him at Steeple Point. Because of working at Xcel Energy (NSP) he always told me "take care of my pension & stock". He leaves behind so many friends that will miss him around town, it won't be the same. Our sympathy to the family.

Mom and Dad were buddies in Lions. My parents were Margie & Gordie Hinrichs. I just remember Bud telling me at Dad's funeral, that he and dad had a $5.00 bet on who was going to go first. Bud won but he couldn't collect his bet from dad!! Dad has been gone 6 years already. You have our sympathies and now Dad and Bud can do their collecting and smart talking together.

Several years ago, I was looking at all of the lapel pins and name tags my dad had collected from the Lions Club ,Legion , and other service organizations that he belonged to during his lifetime, and I came across a name tag that Bud wore when he went to several of his many,many meetings. The name tag simply read, "HELLO... I DON'T KNOW YOUR NAME EITHER '... Thanks dad for teaching me to give, to serve others, and to make everyone feel happy..... and thank you for giving me my...

Bud was truly one of a kind. I remember when I was real young being equal parts terrified and delighted by him! He helped so much when my Dad was so ill and we were so grateful. I remember so many wonderful memories of Bud and Mary, what great friends they were to my Mom and Dad. Love to all the Setzlers~
