I have such great memories of Uncle Bud, who we affectionately called only "uncle" as kids. He always arrived with great laughter, singing and joking to our home in Theresa. My sister Jackie and I were privileged to accompany him and Aunt Rosemarie on one of those infamous trips west when Sue Ellen was a baby. He forgot to secure the car top carrier at one time, and our laundry bag stayed somewhere in Colorado. I remember a very long ride into Boulder when the gas gauge showed empty, and we coasted into town on fumes, to Aunt Rosemarie's consternation. They were very patient with us as we were so naive about anything outside of Wisconsin and really only wanted to listen to rock and roll on the radio despite his effusive descriptions of everything we were seeing. He must have aged quickly in recent years, as even a few years ago, he still seemed so young, certainly always at heart. Marshall and I offer our sympathy to his family, and hope there was ample time for beautiful farewells. Love to all of you---Heidi and Marshall Fields

I have such wonderful memories of Uncle Bud and Aunt Rosemarie - I got to be on the second trip out West with Uncle, Aunt Rosemarie and Suellen - what an adventure! It was so incredible to watch them parent Suellen with so much love and kindness - I thought she was the luckiest baby in the whole world! Aunt Rosemarie and I spent hours at her kitchen table when I was working in Green Bay and again when I was working in Little Chute - I always felt welcome in their home, even when I arrived completely unannounced! Once, when I (mistakenly) had a warrent out for my arrest, I called Uncle in a panic and he patiently walked me through what to do - and when our upstairs renter slipped out in the middle of the night without paying back rent, he assured me that "it couldn't have happened to a nicer person." And laughed! Since there wasn't much else that could be done, it felt good to laugh about it! Uncle had a way of making people feel really special and loved. As a child especially, that was so very important to me and I felt blessed to have him as my godfather.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Danny, always a gentleman, kind, compassionate, and a great sense of humor. Met weekly with Danny the last eight months. We covered lots of territory: Askeaton, Kaukauna, Kimberly, St. Nazianz; people and places, attorneys, judges (VanSustern), Hollandtown (VanAbel's) Tony Wonders Club, Little Chute, and Brennan's bus in Askeaton. His father probably worked on the railroad with my grandfather Owen O'Donnell in Kaukauna. Good memories for both us. God Bless. Jack

We are so sorry for the loss of your beloved father and the world's loss of an original leprechaun. He was always full of smiles and great stories. I'll never forget him being a proxy for our daughter's baptism because her Godparents--John & Megan were stuck in the blizzard of 1999!:) He also gave an incredible walking tour of Boston, stopping at every historical landmark he could find! During that trip, we had crab and he smashed his so hard, it flew over to the next table! He had the biggest grin on his face and we all just laughed! He was such a wonderful man and our lives are so much better for knowing him. God Bless all of you and your beautiful families during this difficult time. Love, Tim, Erin, Ashlyn & Danny Moran
