15 November 2003 - We were notified that "Bud"
passed way from an apparent heart attack.
a follow up email Bud's wife Irene shared the following:
We had a normal day on Friday Nov.
14 and no warning that anything was amiss. However,
at 3:00 a.m. on Saturday, Bud had a heart attack and
died instantly. The paramedics were here within 5
minutes and worked on him for 20 minutes without success.
He has suffered so much the past year that I am consoled
by the thought that he is no longer in pain and is
with Our Lord in Heaven. We had 56 years together
and I will have trouble getting used to the idea that
he is not with me.
Please let the members know via email that Bud has
gone on to a better place and that I hope to see them
at a future reunion. We have enjoyed seeing everyone
in past reunions even though we couldn't make them
all. A wonderful group of people. Thank you for your
