Bud is survived by his loving wife, Donna; his four children, Corrie, Kelly, Karen and Brad; son-in-law, Jim; daughter-in-law, Joanie. Also his grandchildren, Shane, Valerie (Darryl), Carrissa, Amy and Brandon; and great- grandsons, Halen and Caelum.

He was predeceased by his granddaughter, Jamie Stack, whom he missed greatly; mother, Nancy; dad, Gordon; step-mother, Doris; also his nephews, Les and Todd Friesen. Bud left home at a young age and his first job was building elevators, then he went to work for Weights and Measures. Bud then started working on the dairy farm for Wilf Beirnes, Donna's dad. Bud and Donna were married March 30, 1959, an Easter weekend that had no snow. Bud dairyed for a number of years, then went to beef cattle. During this time he also worked at Flexi-Coil where he spent over 20 years. After retirement he couldn't sit still so he went to work for the Kielstra's where he enjoyed working on their farm. Bud enjoyed spending time with his family and had a special relationship with his grandkids. Many hours were spent playing cards, enjoying family meals, attending/ watching sporting events and cheering for his beloved Blackhawks. The Funeral Service will be held at Asquith Baptist Church on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. with Pastor Josh Goetz presiding.

To Donna, kids and great grand kids; I hope you all relive the memories often, as it helps relieve the pain of your loss. Donna we all thought Bud was interesting in dairying until we found out it was you he was interested in! Many fond memories of hockey night in Asquith running the concession booth. Rejoice in the fact that you will see him again. Thinking of you today, Jennie Summach (Kevin and Catherine)

I am so saddened by this news. Bud will be missed greatly.
Bud had the best sense of humor (except when he was out looking for Brad and I at 3 am on a Sunday morning).
I will miss him, but I do have many fond memories of him as well.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
