We have known and loved Dick for many years and his charm never diminished. We loved his quiet wry humor that could be perfectly and tastfully irreverant usually followed by a sweet chuckle. Dick was the consummate gentleman, - peaceful, positive, steady, complimentary, caring, soft spoken and fun. He was always loving and gentle NEVER complaining or criticizing, rather always expressing concern for everyone else.
He is the only person in the universe who called us "Youse Guys".
The only thing Dick loved more than his man-cave (the envy of every guy we know) was his love for Mary Ellen, his girls and all of his family. We were blessed with the privilege of having a dear friend and neighbor.
Our most sincere condolences to the Budd family and the minions who love miss him. We miss him EVERY day

My name is Ray Comeau, I worked at Moore Bearing 15 years. I left in 1999 after managing the Fort Collins. Store after Dick retired.
I remember a very nice man who never had a mean word for anyone and was well liked.

I am so sorry for your loss. Dick was an awesome person to work with. I worked with him at Moore Bearing and he was a caring person . He always made you feel like you belonged with the team. It was a pleasure to know him. I knew Colleen when she was working with Dr. Shoemaker and she was as nice as her dad. God Bless you all !
