Dear Joan, I just found out that Al passed away last week. What a very wonderful man. You have had so many blessed years together and I know this a terrible loss for you and yours. Know that my prayers are with you all. Love, Joanne Grant

Many of us at CH 5 are remembering dear Bud and sharing our favorite memories of him. We are saddened to hear of his passing and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Bud was one of "the older guys" when I started at CH 5 in 1985. He was so kind and encouraging to the "newbies". He was a real pro and did many different jobs well, especially camera and TD, two jobs which I also love. I will always remember his beautiful deepest sympathies.
