I will always remember Bud as a great guy and friend that I met many years ago, and was honored to call friend. It was always a pleasure to see him and visit with him at car shows. Recently it was great seeing him every Thursday night at Der Dutchman. Next car show season will not be the same without seeing Bud at the shows. Rest In Peace my friend.
