BUDD, Gerald R.
BUDD - Gerald R. Born May 9, 1937 in Buffalo, New York. He attended Burgard High School and thereafter worked odd jobs until working for several years at Bethlehem Steel. He then went out on his own becoming a handy man and did very well throughout the years as word got around of his skill level and talents. An avid fishing enthusiast he spent many contented hours and days fishing off the break wall of the Niagara River, Barcelona Pier and many other well-known fishing spots. On February 7, 2017, he lost his battle with lung cancer. He is the beloved son of the late Theodore S. Budd and Helen G. Budd (Mack); brother of the now deceased Theodore Budd, Jr.; Shirley Dobosz and Lenore Szymkowiak. His surviving siblings are Louise Neunder of Amherst, New York and Kathleen Birkman of Cheektowaga, New York.
