Post World War II Life Experience:

After the war he returned home to work on the family ranch with his two brothers, Dick and Carl.

He had a great love for the three-generation ranch and farm operation that he was part owner of, and was kind and caring in his stewardship over his cattle and horses.

Bud and Shirley served a Utah Cove Fort mission at Cove Fort, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from June 1994, to November 1996.

Bud will be remembered for his love and devotion to his wife of 60 years and his family. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend. He is loved very much and will be missed greatly
