Bud was a past president of the Port Ludlow ARC and was instrumental in obtaining permission to use the Sheriff's tower on Swansonville Rd. for the Club's repeater.
Bud's career included time aboard the Ticonderoga Aircraft Carrier setting up the Emmy nominated world wide broadcast of the Apollo 17 Splashdown and meeting Barry Goldwater. For more information about the Apollo 17 splashdown click here.
His family honored Bud's commitment to ham radio with a generous donation of $1000 to the Club's W. E. Whitney Engineering Scholarship fund. Educating a new generation of hams would be his greatest joy.
