Our heartfelt condolences to Bud's family and to Patty. Bud was a special friend and neighbor to all he met at The Villas. We'll miss his walks to the mailbox and his "stop and chats" on warm evenings. A smile, careful chosen words and always kindness - one very, very dear man. Darlene & John

I had the clock shop across the street from Weaver's in the 80's. Almost daily I saw him happily carrying groceries out for his customers. Really impressive. One time he was with others going for coffee when one rapped on window and created a bother while I was trying to sell. I later went to coffee shop to let them know I did not appreciate. Bud was only one who approached me later and apologized. Ruth and I missed him and am sorry for your loss. Henry Myers
