Bud was born in Port Arthur, Ontario and the family lived in various locations across the country finally settling in Comox where he spent the last 35 years. During this time he spent time in the Armed Forces and was a WWII vet. Bud was known by a lot of people in the area. He always found time and loved to chat to anyone and had his flyin’ buddies and his coffee drinkin’ buddies.
There are many evidences of his woodworking abilities in many homes in the area. Bud had an outrageous sense of humor as witnessed by anyone who knew him which lasted to the very last minute of his life.
At Bud’s request, there will be no services. He would just want to say “So Long” to family, buddies and acquaintenances.
You will never have to
“Morphine’ or ‘ensure”.
