Bud attended Saint Rose Catholic School as a youth and graduated from Santa Rosa High School. He met and married June in 1947 and together they raised three children. Bud lived for his family, one of those fathers who was always there for you. After retirement in 1989 from AT&T, Bud enjoyed going on cruises with his lovely wife and moved to Miller Estates in Central Point, Ore. in 2003. After Mom passed in 2008, he loved to walk his Yorkie, "Pebbles", and spend Sunday with his family.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 12, 2013 at Parent-Sorensen Mortuary & Crematory in Petaluma, Calif.

We all love you, Dad, you were the greatest father any family could have. Get Heaven ready for us, we'll all join you when God calls. Bless you.
