What a Great Carpenter he taught me things I’ll never forget. When I teach someone something he taught me I tell them Bud taught me that. He helped me so much at Allstate. It was a pleasure to have known him and to have worked along side of him. He was very proud of his family. He told me how he taught his girls how to tell if the walls were 16or24” on c be tooling for nails in the base. He will be Greatly missed. He left monuments he worked on all over this area one that I always remember him by is the Rex Humbard needle. God Bless

We were sorry to read of the passing of Bud. I have very fond memories of growing up in Burbank with him, especially the many ball games in the alley behind our houses! Bud and I were in the same class all through school, but we seldom saw him after that. We hope that good memories will help you in this sad time. Our sincere sympathies to you, Marcie, and to your family.
