Bud will be missed by all who met him as his sense of humour and generous personality left a memorable impression. He and Peggi watched over this young soldier and kept me on the straight and narrow. I very much enjoyed our dinners, lobster boils, Mess events, football games and especially our field work in AB & BC. It was a joy to watch this loving father raise his children. A great example to us all.❤️❤️❤️R.I.P. my friend.
