Bud entered the Army upon completion of High School and finished his tour of duty as a Staff Sargent. It was through his travels with the army that he met and married the love of this life, Gloria Lee Pitcher, deceased, of Broomes Island, MD. They were married for 62 years.

Bud’s favorite past time was playing golf. If he wasn’t golfing with Gloria, you would find him with his 3 amigos; Jack Upton, Chuck Debolt, and Monty Souder. He treasured the time he spent with his family and friends.
