Bud or Buddy as he was known by most was in the U.S. Navy and served aboard the U.S.S. Sheldrake during WWII. He used to like telling everyone he had the most dangerous job in the navy. He was ships cook. It was thought that Bud was half gypsy as he liked to move around. He met and married his wife Nita in Vancouver, Washington. He moved his family to Arizona in the early 1950's and lived there for several years working in the copper mines. He then moved to Oregon for a short time and then on to Salt Lake City, Utah where he worked as a landscaper and welder and Barber. After his two kids graduated from High School he found himself back in Marana, Aizona where he operated the Marana Lounge for a few years and then on to Poteau, Oklahoma where he built and ran two large Chicken houses (10,000 capacity) until his death in 1975. It was a proud time for him as his son Mike came out to help him in this endeavor. Buddy was known as a hard worker and a jack of all trades. He would tackle anything as long as he thought it would help provide for his family which he loved with a passion. He will be missed by all who knew him and most assuredly by his wife, children and Grandchildren.
Rest Well Buddy!
