    To my scouting friend…thanks for all you did for me, my sons and the Troop/Crew. You are such a great breathe of fresh air, so detailed, organized and full of knowledge. Your efforts to Scouting surpasses most of us involved and you were a great mentor, friend and leader. What a volunteer you were. Your scouting legacy will live on for years and years to come.

    My big brother Bud when I was a young child my brother was someone I looked up to and I learned many things from him. He joined the Navy and I remember even as a young child being proud of my big brother being a Sailor he even brought me home a small Cracker Jack Navy dress blue uniform and I was so proud to wear that uniform in front of him I guess it was inevitable I would also join the Navy. As I was growing up my brother came home after he was done with the Navy and he showed up with this long blonde haired woman who was for me one of the coolest ladies I knew. I spent many days/weeks with my brother and his wife helping and learning with their new home and these were some of the best and funniest times at the time of my young life. My brothers work ethic along with my fathers allowed me to emulate for my own life. My brother has left an impact in my life in so many ways through the years in work hard never give up and give back to community and people. He is the one who got me interested in cars and this common interest carried all through our lives. My brother and his wife raised three outstanding men who have also learned and carried on Buds can do never quit attitude. Bud was successful in his work, successful with the Boy Scouts and community, and most of all successful with his family. I am going to miss Bud so much it has left a hole in my heart. I will be there for my sister in law and my nephews if ever needed.

    Bud I am sure you are already doing good things in heaven with Mom, Dad, and Ginger.

    We Love and Miss you. Paul and Carolle
