In loving memory ~

With deep sorrow, we announce the passing of Bud, who lived a life full of joy and adventure.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Cathie, and children: Justin (Caroline), Jeremy, Forrest, and Megan Cunningham (Colin). Bud also leaves behind grandchildren Harriette, Ellie, Phoebe, Graeme, Khosi, and Everett, who brought immeasurable happiness to his life. His siblings Sid (Sonja), Laraine Pierce (Rodney), Tyke Krismansen, Janis Roberts (Garth), Brian (Lola), Christine Evans (Grant), and Don, along with in-laws Ted Smith (Kim), Andy Smith (Brenda), and Lorna Ellis (Reed), share in the sorrow of his passing. Many nieces and nephews also cared deeply for their uncle.

Bud's passion for life was evident in his lifelong pursuit of fishing. From his days as a commercial fisherman to his retirement spent fishing for leisure, Bud found solace, pleasure, and excitement on the water. When his beloved boat faced mechanical troubles four months ago, an outpouring of support from friends, aware of Bud's illness, ensured its repair allowing him few more fishing trips.

We extend heartfelt gratitude to James, Quincy, Esther, Barry, Ken, Kevin, Billy, Todd, and Wayne for their selfless assistance during this time.

Bud was profoundly grateful for the abundance of love and happiness in his life. His infectious humour, quick with and boundless kindness endeared him to many.

We wish to thank Dr. Bascom, Dr. Beattie, Dr. Regler, Dr. Daws, Wendy and pharmacists, Kush and Kartik for their support.

Finally, we express our gratitude to Bud and Cathie's dear friends, particularly Melody, Laurie, Tracy and Kathie whose kindness enveloped Bud in his final days.

A celebration of Bud's life will be held at Crown Isle on Sunday, September 15, 2024, from 2pm - 4pm.
