Bud served his family, his community, and his country. As a young man,
he worked in the CCC camps in Raco, and later served in the Army
during WW II in France, Belgium and Great Britain. He was a talented
baseball player and participated in an exhibition baseball for the
Queen of England while stationed there. He and his family move to
Cedarville from Rogers City to help open up the limestone quarry.
After moving, he helped to convert an old schoolhouse into
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. He often took care of the grounds, and
planted a pair of sugar maple trees at the church that are still there
Bud brought passion and grit to all that he did — he loved to fish, golf,
chase coyotes and follow the Tigers. His family and friends thank him
for sharing his zest for life.
