Bud passed away on April 21st from complications related to diabetes. He loved sports and could talk for hours about his beloved Lakers and Raiders, he had the heart of a champion and never let you forget he won. Bud will always be remembered for his contagious smile, laugh and bone crushing hugs. He lived most of his life in the south valley area and attended Alta High School. He worked at Swire Coca Cola in Draper, UT for 20 years, he loved his job and the people he worked with. Bud was the most caring, thoughtful and loving son, brother, uncle and friend.

Live life to the fullest with the Mamba mentality." to the world-wide Covid 19 pandemic, there will be no services at this time. A private family viewing and prayer service was held on April 22nd. We will hold a celebration of his life later this summer when social distancing restrictions are lifted. Bud will be laid to rest at Larkin Sunset Gardens in Sandy, Utah.
His family would like to thank the doctors and nurses who cared for Bud in his final days. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the American Diabetes Association.
In the words of Bud’s Idol, “Live life to the fullest with the Mamba mentality”.
Life Story Info
The first day I met Steve, I knew he was special. Our time together will never be forgotten. He loved the 4th because fireworks were his favorite. Hopefully this year the fireworks will be in his honor. I was blessed to have him and his family in my life. He had the biggest heart. Could always make me laugh. He deserves nothing but the best. I wish you and your family love and peace. I'll never forget you ! (Bug & Beb)
Our hearts go out to the family and friends. Steve was an awesome guy with a great sense of humor. Football and group texting will never be the same without Steve’s 1 liners. Take care buddy and I hope one day you can out score Kobe in those one on one games I know your having. You will always be missed by your AZ Bro’s.
