Allan Douglas (Bud) McChesney of Edmonton Alberta, passed away on Monday, August 22, 2022 at the age of 80 years.
Bud was born May 10, 1942 in South Porcupine Ontario and grew up in Timmins Ontario, the eldest of 4 children.
At the young age of 16, Bud joined the Canadian Armed Forces and proudly continued his Army career until he retired as Warrant Officer in 1979.

(Once an army man, always an army man).
