You could always find Bud in some kind of equipment or in his shop. He bought is 1st truck at the age 16 and his first new truck in 1949, with the proceeds from the flax crop.
Bud loved restoring old tractors, red, green, gray, and orange could be seen throughout his shop. He would grin widely when they ran again. Bud could build almost anything from wood or iron. He also enjoyed cutting and polishing agates.
Anyone who ever had the pleasure of riding with Bud in his pickup across the pasture would never forget it. Driving at Mach 60, hanging on for dear life and listening to childhood stories. All the while he was laughing; he had a very giving heart and a wonderful sense of humor.
After retirement, Bud enjoyed having more time to spend with his grand and great grandchildren when they would come to visit He would smile from ear to ear while he held or talked with them.
