Bud was a great guy and neighbor. He always had time to visit if you saw him some where. He did a lot for his community. Rest in peace.

Such sad news, but I wanted to share this with you, while making my rounds at Hornel one weekend I stopped and talked with Bud and the others in the engine room like I normally would do ,they had jars of green and red peppers, and Bud asked me if I wanted to try some, I said yes but not the red ones , I had a green one and once I took a big bite they laughed so hard at my reaction . Every time I would see Bud in one the stores in town we would visit and I would tell him “ Bud you never seem to get any older” I will never forget my friend 💙
