  1. Marianne MacKenzie :

    I knew Bud from Mckenzie Retirement Home where my Mom is a resident. Bud was always friendly and willing to chat. He had many a coffee with my mom, Simone and myself. Bud and my uncle Rocky (who passed away in 2008) sat at the same table and I think they were instumental in getting people to come down for evening coffee.
    Please accept our heartfelt condolences
