He was preceded in death by his father, Henry in 1960, and mother, Ordella (Blaha) in 1998. Bud was a member of the Minnesota National Guard for 7 years, attaining the rank of Sgt; he left the National Guard upon his fathers’ death in order to run the farm.

Bud attended school in Stillwater, graduating in 1951. He was one of the original firemen that formed the department in St. Joseph Twp. in 1964; he served for a total of 33 years, which included his tenure as the Chief for 9 years. He was married in 1962 to Marilyn Wegge and later was married to Bernice (Hartzi) Dahlke in 1981. Most people of the area will remember him as the “Lazy L Ranch Egg Man” as he had business and house routes delivering eggs for approximately 50 years.
