Dear Dorothy and family, We send our deepest condolences to you in your loss of Bud. A fine gentleman, and always a pleasure to meet. We missed Bud’s service as we were in Texas at the time. Sincerely Barry and Jean McDonald
We were so sorry to hear of Bud’s passing. We have fond memories of Bud as our neighbour in Chinook Park. He was a stellar neighbour, as evidenced by his patience when Larry flung a baseball through your front window during the first week we moved in. Despite that, you and Bud became fast friends of ours. We loved and appreciated Bud’s kindness and humour over the years. Our condolences to you and your family at this sad time.
Sincerely, Jean, Bill and the Toole family
It was such a shock to hear of Bud’s passing. He was a fountain of youth, vigour, wisdom, humour and above all a true Gentleman and I enjoyed working closely with him at Star for those many years. He will be missed by many Calgarians, as his life touched them in so many ways through is many business connections and especially golf! I send my deepest condolences to you and Dan & Laurie and their families.
Sincerely, Sue & Hans Gryzenhout
Dear Mrs. McDonald, Danny and Laurie:
Karen and the boys and I were so very sorry to hear of Mr. McDonald’s passing. Of all of my parents’ friends from years gone by, Mr. McDonald/Bud had to be one of the people we loved the most, if not the person we loved the most. He was tireless in his energy, he was the life of every party, and he was the kindest and most friendly person anyone could know. He was one in a million, and he will be truly missed by all who knew him. We are so very sorry for your loss, and we are thinking of you at this time. Peace be with you all, and may your hearts and minds be filled with memories of the wonderful life that he led. Sincerely, Doug, Karen (Boon), James, Will, and Chris Follett
I first met Bud playing opposite him in Interfaculty Touch Football at U of A in 1947 but really got know him as a fellow employee of the Honolulu Oil Co in Calgary for five years from 1955 to 60. He is knowledgeable, smart, quick-witted and kind. Too bad the Lord did not make more of them. My condolences to Dorothy and family
To Dorothy and family from Bud’s ARBI family (The Association for the Rehabilitation of the Brain Injured):
What a wise and gentle man, and such a dedicated board member selflessly serving ARBI for 12 years. Bud did so much for us; we are grateful to have known him. Our hearts go out to all of you at this sad time.

Dorothy: Our condolences to you and your family. Many great memories from our days at Star. Regards, Elenora and Art Deyholos
It was an honor to know Bud in the time that I spent with him. He has helped Sara and me out with so much over the years, and really given us a great start in life. I will look back with fond memories of all the jokes and conversations we had at Sunday dinners over the years.
