He leaves behind his wife of 27 years, Cheryl, two sons, Jim and Sean Hodgson, stepchildren Rachelle White and Rob Warren, as well as 8 grandchildren, Christa, Adam, Jessica, Olivia, Andrew, Unique, Truesta and Raryn.
Bud was born in Toronto, Ontario on September 6, 1930. Later, in 1977, he moved to Lethbridge where he finished raising his two boys. On July 15, 1995, he married Cheryl. Cheryl was the love of his life and their bond was very strong. The two were never apart and they did everything together.
Bud paid service in the Korean War from 1948-1954, fingerprinting soldiers. He then worked as a labourer for the city, and in 1997, he retired. His love for his family, model railroads, nature, and visiting Canadian historic sites kept him busy. He also enjoyed helping people and volunteered with outreach for the Nord-Bridge Seniors Centre for several years.
Bud also worked with the Blackfoot elders and they gave him an honorary Blackfoot name, Iiyikitappii, meaning brave or courageous one.
A Memorial Service / Reception will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Wednesday, December 14, 2022 at 11:00 A.M. for anyone wishing to attend, with Pastor Roger Halverson officiating.
