Bud attended Cabinet Mountain Calvary Chapel in Clark Fork, Idaho where he greatly enjoyed teaching children’s bible study with his wife Diane for many years. He served for many years on the Heron Rural Fire Dept. Board of Directors and greatly enjoyed participation in the Heron Players drama group, bringing many memorable characters to life over the years. Bud was a talented craftsman who enjoyed creating Western decorative art items and children’s wooden toys. Bud’s greatest love after God and family was flying his Cessna 175 in this incredibly beautiful mountainous area. Many of his life’s dreams were fulfilled living in Montana for which he was most grateful.
