This is a voice from the distant past. I was a scrawny little kid when I spent a few summers on the Grover's farm. I worshiped Bud, who was probably 16 or 17 when my sister, Helen, and I spent time there. I was just certain that the world revolved around him, but Lillian, Jo Ellen and Clara fitted in somewhere. Clara, do you remember telling me that you grew tall by stretching to pick the peaches high up in the trees? I never saw Bud after about 1951 or '52, but I remember to this day how unfailingly kind he was to me. In retrospect, and having had teenagers of my own, I now appreciate the special patience he had to put up with me. Times like those on the Grover farm are the special things we remember and grew from as youngsters. A big thank you to all the Grovers, Bud, Lillian, Clara, Jo Ellen and your wonderful parents for giving a little boy such marvelous experiences. I hope some happy memories from a grateful guest in your young lives will help a little bit in this time of trial. My sister, Helen, joins me in this message. John

Bud was a good kind man, and although I did not know him all that well, he was friends with my Grandfather Raymond. After Grandpa passed, Bud would visit with my Grandmother Marjorie most every Sunday. If she was away he would often stop down at the barn workshop to see what my latest project was & shoot the breeze. My condolences for your loss, God Bless, David Osborn II

Bud was the finest example of Christian love and charity that Jerry and I have ever known. Jerry worked with Bud for around 50 years and had a wonderful relationship that will be greatly missed. In his soft-spoken way, Bud never met a person he didn't befriend.Our prayers are with his beautiful family.

Bud was one of the finest men I have ever met and I had the pleasure to work with him for many years. He was a well respected leader in the lubricants industry. His positive demeanor and excellent skills made him a well liked and a sought after professional, Bud was also a problem solver who never became flustered, even in the most complex situations. Most of all Bud was a Christian, who cared deeply about his family, fellow man and making our world a better place. His simple style spoke volumes on how to lead a good and positive life. He was a positive example to others. Mat he rest in peace.
