Ormond became their home when Bud accepted a job with General Electric Co. and then became a computer professor at Daytona State College for over 30 years! Bud's avid interest in antique Model A's, T's, and Mustangs – as long as they were FORD – were his second love! Arrangements entrusted to Lohman Funeral Home, Ormond Beach.

I am so sorry to hear of Buddy's passing. He was a super teacher at DBCC. His 6 Blackboard Lectures were legendary. He made us laugh and he made us learn. He recommended me several jobs in the years after I graduated and I landed al 3, I am sure with a good word from him.

I was a miserable student of his at Father Lopez. He probably never knew what a long term impact he had on my life. In spite of my indifference he taught me much that has served me through two careers. My deepest sympathies to his family. He was a great teacher of math and life.

I was blessed to have known Bud and his family. They are a wonderful family of caring people. I worked with Bud at Daytona Beach Community College. He was an excellent teacher and role model for his students. I am sending sympathy to his family and keeping them in my thoughts and prayers.

What a wonderful man! I first met and helped him when he coached track at Father Lopez. I was involved with the Car Club for years and continued my friendship with Bud. He loved his family, loved his Model A's and always had that great smile showing me that he enjoyed everything he did. I will very much miss him, and he will always be remembered.

We worked with a Bud and Andrea at GE. Remember when he would drive his 1930 Model A Ford Roadster to work. We were members of the Volusia Region, Inc. AACA back in 1974 with Bud.
