    Please know how sorry I am to learn of Bud’s passing. I had the pleasure of sitting in Lodge with him as a Brother Mason in December of 1971. He was a fine man and a great family man. God bless.

    Bud Moore was the sweetest, most generous, funny neighbor a family could have. He was always thinking of others and so good to his family. He was always there with a helping hand and a funny joke. We will miss him.

    Bud was the true example of a “servant.”
    He not only cared about family, he cared so
    much about friends of family. He was only happy if everyone around him was happy. His presence and
    kind gestures will always be memorable!
