"I didn't know Buddy but I am here because I am the current owner of his beloved bird Wyatt.  I have had him for close to a year now and know that buddy must have loved Wyatt because of how well he is trained.  Wyatt is an amazing bird and I cannot fathom the feelings he must of felt upon buddy's passing.  I wish I knew half the things that Wyatt can do...he is truly an amazing bird.  Thank you Buddy for an wonderful gift and he will have a family forever.  RIP.

Harry and Auda Welch"

"Bud - Jim and I were in St. Peter this past weekend for a family birthday party and as we drove down 4th street, we were thinking about the restaurant we went to for all you can eat crab-legs and how much we laughed because you are such a comedian.  I know you have all the angels in heaven rolling on the ground in laughter.  We think of you often and miss you lots.  Love Trudi and Jim Ellis!"

""Bud, you were the kindest funniest most genuine soul I have ever know.  I loved your humor and how you were always loving and kind to everyone you met.  The way you were always willing to help anyone including pesky rodents.  Even those furry guys you would treat with love and care and re-locate.  We met through bowling but the friendship extended beyond."  ~ You left this earth far too soon, but your legacy will continue May you rest in peace and be the angel from above guiding us with your charm and wink with that glass eye of yours!  Love you friend Thanks for all the great memories <3"

I remember Buddy from years ago coming to the bank to see you. He told us stories about the "critters" he encountered on his job. Funny stories. You have memories, happy and sad, work on the good ones.
I had forgotten how much of a resemblance between you and Buddy."

"LeRoy and I have such wonderful memories of Bud.....several years worth, in fact. His smile, his laugh, his funny jokes, the way he was with kids, and his skills on the flagstand just for starters. He was a totally amazing person, very warm and loving, and we both miss him dearly. Hard to believe it's already been a year since he left us......"

"Bud was a great guy.. Always a smile on his face.  My memory in-volves Wyatt.  He entertained us with that bird. (child). I always enjoyed them so much.  I understand, "gone too soon."  I know how hard it is.  Right now some of these memories hurt too much, but I also know that eventually these same memories will warm you, and you will feel Bud holding you in his arms"

"From the first time I met Bud, we hit it off and became instant friends.  Bud had a sense of humor out of this world and loved to make people laugh.  He was so good at it too!  But there was a side I never saw until he met Robin.  Bud had a huge heart and was very generous and giving! He would do anything to help anyone or anything.  I remember we were on our way to our Bowling Banquet, it was already dark.  We got there before Bud and Robin and was wondering where they were when they finally pulled in.  They were running late because Bud saw a baby owl that had just got hit by a car and he stopped to save him.  Although the owl did not survive, his last moments were blessed with Bud and Robins compassion for animals.  That's the way Bud was.  He loved People, Animals and Life.  No matter how bad his day was, he would brighten every one else's day he could.  He was a good man, a good friend and he is missed! I am sure he has everyone in Heaven laughing.  You will never be forgotten Bud Howell!  We love you love Jim and Trudi Ellis"

"Buddy was a special kid who rode my bus. He was a character and fun to have known. I reconnected with him on fb a few years back and was happy he hit me up. So sad to have just learned he passed."
