What a wonderful person to work with the North Country Cluster of insurance agents. He was always intelligent, fair, and kind. We are very sorry for his family's loss. He was a great leader and we will miss him.

Gail I am so sorry to hear of Bud's passing. He was a great guy and I always enjoyed seeing him and Barb when I has breakfast at the cove.
I'm sure Barb was happy to invite him into heaven.

I loved Bud. He served our church beautifully & I worked with him officiating Red & Black games. As head referee, he was accurate, fair, & fearless. Angry 6'7", 300 lb. linemen didn't faze him. Most important, he always made me feel that I was his friend. This was sincere, and his special gift.
