Bud was raised on a farm near Clear Lake, SD. He served two years in the US Army.
On Sept. 2, 1955, he married Phyllis Bevers and they raised four children; Paula, Joel, Curtis and Rodney while farming in Deuel County. After retiring from farming they moved to Estelline, SD.
 Camping with the grandchildren and boys was one of Bud and Phyllis’s passions.
They also enjoyed traveling to neighboring towns to listen to live music.  Visiting their daughter in Story, WY was also a highlight. He was a member of the Hamlin Reformed Church. He loved and enjoyed horses of all kinds, both riding and driving his team of mules. Bud loved visiting with people and sharing a joke or two. In his final years he enjoyed long drives in the country with his kids and stopping for lunch at his favorite places.
 Bud was preceded in death by his parents and siblings.
 Grateful for having shared his life with four children, Paula (Patrick) Morgan, Story, WY, Joel (Jane) DeBoer, Brookings, SD, Curtis DeBoer, Brookings, SD and Rodney DeBoer, Bruce, SD. Seven grandchildren, Ryan (Stephanie), Amber (Daryl), Sarah (Jacob), Jeff (Mindy), Jason (Mandy), Jacob and Chad, several great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
