My sincere condolences to your family. As a new comer to Illinois Bell in 1986, I was given various job positions and projects to achieve with various Network and Technical Support team members. Bud was pleasant and a pleasure to work with; he always lend a hand of assistance and helped me learn about the business .... and always with a smile!

It's been a long time since I worked with Bud at Illinois Bell HQ. It was always a treat to go on a troubleshooting outing. My condolences to his family, and I will keep Bud in my prayers.

Jan, I am sorry to hear about Bud. I was thinking about him, earlier this month, ands Dale told me that he had passed. He taught me a lot in the years we worked together on the 24th floor.
I enjoyed the NTI cruises the four (you, my wife, Bud and myself) of us took, on Lake Michigan. WE had some good times. We lost touch with Bud after he acquired his fishing place, but I am great full for the time we spend working together at IBT. And he always knew teh places to stop at, for a sandwich and beer.
