He loved eating breakfast at Cracker Barrel with all of his trucker friends once a month. He also was an avid fisherman and rode horses along with his wife Sondra McDonald whom he married October 2003. He had a high school crush on Sondra which came to fruition when they married. They had a great marriage, Bud stepped in to be a husband, father and grandfather for the family. Bud was a strong Christian who proclaimed Jesus to all who he encountered.
