    Im saddened to hear of Bud's passing..  Bud was one of the nicest perspn i ever met by accident. Many many yrs ago myself and my friend and out sons stopped by his home and asked if we could hunt his land for rabbits and squirrels . He said "sure' go ahead.. We proceded to chat for a while and he told us how far was his property.. Ever since then we Always stopped and knocked at the door to tell him hi and we were there..  He was truly one of a kind.  You have my deepest sympathys.
