Bud attended Parlette one-room school, Wapakoneta school and attended Botkins High School. He was a life long farmer, having his own team of horses by the age of 10. He worked several jobs along with farming, all of them in and around the Lima area. He thoroughly enjoyed working for Carl Horn’s Packard Auto Dealership in the 1940’s. He retired from Montgomery Ward Auto Service. He always had a story to tell and a joke to keep you laughing. His family was very dear and important and he enjoyed being with them camping, fishing, hunting, monthly birthday dinners and all holidays. He was a member of the Harrod Christian Church but occasionally attended Forest Park United Methodist Church in recent years. Bud witnessed a lot of changes in his lifetime. From horses to putting a man on the moon. He was very interested in what occurred with technology after transistors were invented. He was always interested and wanted to know how things worked as they were developed along the way. He was self taught in many areas. He will be very much missed by his family and friends. He also liked to travel and had been to 48 of 50 states as well as Canada.
