He is preceded in death by his parents and sister Rosalie Miller. Bud was a lifelong resident of Waynesboro and graduated from Waynesboro Area Senior High School in 1954. He and Nancy were married on October 13, 1959 at the Church of Christ by Reverend Nathan Williamson in Winchester, Virginia. He belonged to the First Evangelical United Brethren Church as a child which later became Faith United Methodist Church of Waynesboro. Bud was the embodiment of a hard worker and provider. At a young age, he helped support his family setting up pins at the bowling alley and delivering groceries. Upon graduation, Bud worked at Frick Company for a short time until he learned his trade in wood pattern making. He received his Journeyman papers in 1961 and worked at Globe Pattern Works of Waynesboro for 20 years. He then worked at Fairchild Industries, and Rohr Industries in Hagerstown, Maryland until his retirement at age 65. Family was everything to Bud. Everything he did in life he did for his family. He instilled in his children a strong work ethic, stressed the value of education and encouraged them to pursue a college degree. He attended every marching band event, baseball game, dance recital, school function, and Grandparent’s Day event showing pride and joy in his children’s and grandchildren’s accomplishments. He valued time spent together. He enjoyed family camping trips, vacations at the beach each summer, trips to Walt Disney World with his grandchildren and time together during the holidays. He was a long-time, dedicated, season-ticket-holder, die-hard Penn State Fan!! He loved tailgating and attending games in Beaver Stadium with friends and family and proudly showed his Nittany Lion pride donning Penn State attire ‘til his final days. Bud loved working with wood and spent hours in his shop making clocks for family and friends and repairing furniture for others. He also had a great love for dogs, especially Golden Retrievers. He often spent hours throwing a tennis ball to them from his back porch after a long day of mowing his lawn. His land, though hard to maintain, was a pleasure to view after a long day’s work. After retirement, Bud and Nancy traveled throughout The West visiting national parks and destinations in The South West. He loved visiting new places!! Putting others before himself was a quality Bud exuded. He spent countless hours volunteering for the American Red Cross and donated blood for many, many years. He was a member of BPO Elks #731 of Waynesboro, the American Legion Post #517 of Mercersburg, an active member of the Franklin County Shrine Club for many years and a proud member of the Masonic Lodge #586 Acacia Lodge for 56 years. He also served 6 years in the Pennsylvania National Guard. Bud will be remembered as a kind man, a devoted father and servant to others. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to neighbors, friends, family or anyone in need. Even at The Leland, where he spent his final days, he was often observed helping the other residents. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. At Bud’s request, a private graveside service will take place at the convenience of the family in Green Hill Cemetery, Waynesboro, on the Kriner Plot.
