  6. My sincerely condolences.

    Bud and Linda were part of our fraternity Gourmet Group in the 70″s in Chicago where we all got jobs post Bachelors graduation.

    Bud was an Annexer . . . I was a Houser. I remember him and D Healy playing frisbee cross 4th St, when the annex still stood. I remember, too, that he was patient with me, as I was always behind in house bills.

    I remember, too, his marriage to Gaileh

    May he rest in peace

  10. I’m so sorry to hear of my Cousin Bud’s Passing. I have many wonderful memories when we would visit the Tice kids when they all lived on the farm. Bud and my brother would always spend time together and I loved spending time with Kit and Jack! I will be praying for you Gaileh! May God bring you Comfort in this difficult time.

  11. As a Greenview High School teacher for 5-years, I recall Bud being an outstanding student,
    great thinker and a real gentleman.
