Bud. I was just thinking of you. O googled your nane and learned you had passed. I was not only your insurance agent but we were good friends. You sold my son his first car and my mom one as well. You were a great guy and the worldbwont be the same without you. Rest in peace.

Wow, just finding out that my dear friend has been relieved of his pain, I’m sad for me I loved calling him and talking about the business, but he’s better now. Rest easy, you always worried if the people I worked for knew what they had, my boss knows and he makes it a point to let me know Bud.
Keep those customers happy brother until next time……I love you brother.

I met Bud when I was just a kid working at Lokey Oldsmobile in Clearwater, Florida. He was one of my best friends working there. I still tell the stories about me and him playing hooky from the car lot. Bud was quite the character and I always looked up to him. Condolences on the lost of such a fun and great guy.

Bud, you were one of the kindest men I have ever met. You sold me a Cadillac that I had for nearly 20 years. I came down from CT, and you showed me all around Clearwater, took me to lunch, and opened up your home. We talked about our shared love of Christ, and stories of how we met our wives. I will surely never forget your kindness. I will see you again brother. But not yet.

I met Bud over 20 yrs ago when he came into my ice cream store. I’ve never met a man who could be so kind, generous, guiding, impartial but still make a statement. A true mentor. I know he loved his family dearly but how he cared for his friends will leave a mark on MY life forever.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

The first time Jean and I met you we were fresh off the plane from the Cayman Islands hoping for a fresh start in Clearwater, Florida. We realized we needed a car so we stopped at Lokey’s used car lot. It was our first sight of “Bud”. He was hitching up his trousers with a Cheshire cat grin on his face. I thought to myself here comes trouble. He marched out of the office and into our hearts. We were best friends for as long as he was in Florida. God bless you…You will be missed! Love from Jim and Jean Wray
