After retirement, Bud turned his penchant for coaching to his Irish Setters, earning honors in all categories, including confirmation shows, obedience and hunt testing. More importantly, he made yet even more lifelong friends along the way.
On top of all his personal and professional accomplishments, most of all Bud was a loving husband, an amazing Dad and grandfather, and a stranger to no one. He will be missed more than words can describe.
Survivors include his wife of 35 years, Sharon; sons, Alan and wife, Theresa, Greg and wife, Theresa, and Tim Hampton; grandchildren, Ryan, Grace and Connor Hampton; sister, Carol Ann Martin; brother-in-law, Jim Duncan; sister-in-law, Mary Duncan; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; many dear friends; and his beloved Irish Setters, Colin and Gavin.
