    My Good Friend & Mentor upon purchasing (June 2002) my first corvette, 1981, two-tone Cpe, 4-spd, here in CA. Bud & Nan lived in Modesto, CA at the time, 18 miles from me. I met Bud at his Modest home in July 2002 thru another C-3 owner and I had many questions for YODA about this grand car I just bought, he took me under his wing and we became C-3 buddies forever, both him and Nan have been my extended family since 2002. I visited Bud & Nan in Amarillo in June 2013, probably my third trip there since they relocated to TX. I'm a retired Air Force retiree and Bud being a Navy Veteran was just the right mix for both of us, He was so like a brother to me, I admired & respected Bud for his values, We all will miss him and knowing him being part of CAC was a great journey for making many friends all over these united states! He guided me alone joining CAC in April 2003, I can never thank or repay the direction and advice Bud gave me, but I will pass/inform as Bud to others ;0) BEST Wing-Man ever....thanks Bud

    RIP

    Didn't know Yoda but remember seeing his presence here over the years (especially when I had my C3).

    Condolences to family and friends.

    Common sense is like deodorant. The folks who need it most never seem to use it and there's no polite way to tell them.

    Default Sad Day, Indeed....

    Though I am a stranger to everyone here, it is still sad to lose a member of the Corvette family. My sincere condolences to Bob's family, to all who knew him on a personal level.

    Through this whole ordeal I had faith that Bud would beat this. This last setback really had me worried. I planned on stopping to see him today on my way through Amarillo but it just wasn't meant to be. I never knew anyone like him before and there will never be another. A true friend in any way you can define it.

    Not that strange, George. I recognize you from the Factory Correct Resto days back on the other forum.

    It is with a heavy hart to write this, I got to meet Bud a few years back here in Amarillo TX. At first meeting he was in his rare 81 and me in mine. We talked for over an hour and half, he was a great guy to be around and was a true corvette guy. I will miss him.
