My Uncle Bud, a great family man, highly respected professional surveyor and business owner, decorated veteran, fantastic cook, and boy could he build a campfire! So many hunting and fishing excursions with him and his sons, grandchildren - memories that will last me the rest of my days. Although we are glad he's beyond pain and suffering now, he will be missed immeasurably. I'm proud to call him my uncle and what a great role model he was for all who knew him well. He both sired and inspired generations, leaves an absolutely wonderful legacy. RIP, Uncle Bud, until we meet again. Your newphew, Gregg

Couldn’t help but love him. I called him Pips, because he treated me like family. Among all the things mentioned here, he was also an excellent woodworker...he could build furniture finer than any furniture store had! A brilliant man who loved everyone he met. I’m going to miss him. ❤
I love you Pops....Dee

Mary Ann, Russell, Cory and Joann, my sincere condolences for the loss of your husband and father. He was a great man, and I was fortunate enough to mentor under him early in my career. He was truly, a surveyors surveyor.
The world is truly a better place because of his life and career.

Sincerely
