Bud enjoyed all things hunting and he was an excellent trapper; he had many fox pelts to show for his efforts. His greatest love was farming; the dairy cows, working in the fields from early in the morning to late at night. Many times, during the height of the field work he would work late into the night, sometimes falling asleep in his Allis-Chalmers tractor, only to wake up and start working again. Over the years he had many different canine friends working with him on the farm, Bud enjoyed the company and loyalty his dogs provided. Bud especially enjoyed being a godparent to a couple of his siblings children. He was a kind, honest, caring, very hardworking man that was always there for friends and family in need.
