Our entire family was positively impacted by Budd's generosity. As Den leader for my brother (Rich Cox), friend to my family (Jackie and Phillip Potts and Chelle Precht), he and his wife Pat were such pillars of the community. Mason and so many who grew up here owe him a debt of gratitude for his leadership! We lift the family up in our prayers!
