Bud was united in marriage to Mary McBride on March 6, 1957.  Together they raised their family in Holstein.  Bud worked at V.T. Industries for more than 43 years.  He was a simple man who enjoyed the simple pleasures of life.  Bud was the first to lend a helping hand, he enjoyed playing cards with friends, and most of all, he enjoyed being outdoors and sitting under his shade tree.  His pride and joy was his time spent with family, especially his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and grand-dogs.  They retired in Galva where he was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Galva and of the American Legion Dibbern Post #64 of Galva. 

He is survived by his wife Mary of Galva, IA; children, Rick (Cheri) Wiese of Galva, IA and Karen (Wayne) Toel of Schaller, IA; grandchildren, Tasha (Jamie) Phillips, Travis Wiese and special friend, Kelly Stanke, Brooke (Blake) Woodke, Jenna Wiese, Breanna Wiese, Kimberly Toel, Michael Toel and special friend Rebecca Costi, Ryan Toel and fiancee Kayla Hutton; great-grandchildren, Calid Armstrong, Rio Phillips Vida Phillips, Blaire Woodke, Braden Ward, Karsten and Preston Cornell, Justin Costi and Bentley Toel.  He is also survived by his extended family and friends, including brothers-in-law, Robert McBride and Larry (Ronda) McBride.

Bud was preceded in death by his parents; son, Donald; parents-in-law, Ed and Irene McBride; brother, Robert (Hilda) Wiese; sisters, Evelyn (Delbert) Schug and Katherine (Harold) Jensen and sister-in-law, Jo McBride.
