Hubert (Bud) Austin Atkinson

As a husband, father, grandfather and friend Hubert (Bud) Austin Atkinson was a one of a kind soul, who spread countless amounts of warmth and joy, before passing away peacefully on April 27th, 2019 at the age of 87.

Born in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, but raised in Cape Breton, Bud spent his adulthood as a member of the armed services, where he and his family travelled many miles across the country.

Bud will be lovingly remembered by his wife Ollie, his son Craig (Jackie) and his daughters Donna (Sean), Mary Lou (Jake) and Sandy (Steve). As well as his grandchildren Ryan (Sammi), Melissa (Shaun), Jeny (Jeff), Ben (Laura), Johnathan (Kate-Lynn), Meg, Beth, and Sam (Tyler). Bud will be cherished in the hearts of his great grandchildren Tatum, Lewis, Summer, Ben, Jace and Maddie. His memory will also be shared by his nephews Dan (Christine), Rick (Janis) and Joel (Wendy). Bud is predeceased by his father Israel, mother Jenny, sister Mary and nephew Berry.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the entire staff at Vanguard Shepherd’s Care for their kindness, support and care during Bud’s time there. A special thank you to Arthur, your kindness was more than we could have hoped for.

Funeral to be held in Prospect Bay, Nova Scotia at a later date. Celebration of life to be held in Edmonton, Alberta at a later date.

Memorial donations in Bud’s honour may be made directly to your local palliative care unit.

Dear Ollie and family, we were introduced to Bud when Missie welcomed Shaun into your family. Bud was such a “gentle”man. We got to know him through Missie’s memories of him and her love of him shone through her stories of a Grandad Bud. All our sympathies, Jan & Terry Maslyk

Dear Ollie, Missy and family,
Wish I could find the words to mend your broken hearts. I was lucky to have met you Ollie and Bud when I was his nurse 30 years ago at the Charles Camsell Hospital. Funny how we remembered each other 25 years later! Sending you big hugs during this difficult and emotional time.
