He and his family moved to Round Rock, Texas in 1969 to assist in opening the IBM plant in Austin. After 25 years with IBM, Bud retired and moved with Phyllis to Dale where he enjoyed working his farm and becoming involved in the community.
Bud is survived by his son, Vaughan and his wife Barbara of Seguin, his daughter Pamela Thomson of Markham, Virginia, seven grandchildren, Megan, Nathan, Bridget, Emma, Hank, Matthew and Jordan, and two great-grandchildren, Kase and Hadley, and his long time companion, Jean Williams.
