    He was quite the gentleman. I had the honor of servicing him for years at Carney Optical for his Eye Glass needs and he was a joy to work with. My deepest condolences to the family. May God’s love give you peace during this time of sorrow, and memories of him be cherished forever. “Life Has Changed, Not Ended”. All Praises To God!!!!!

    I am so sorry to hear about Bud passing. I was good friends with his sister, Carrie, in high school and always sort of in awe of Bud. My thoughts and prayers are with his family
