Bud was an artist and loved to draw. He enjoyed music, animals and any wildlife. He would spend his summers at his lake cabin in Cross Lake, where he was joined by his nephew on many occasions. Bud was a perfectionist in everything he did whether it be golfing (he had a hole in one), bowling or skating. He loved all sports.

He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Marlys Boyd.
