Bud was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan on January 12, 1931. He spent his childhood on a farm with his seven brothers, four sisters and parents John Roy Abbott and Clara Annie Hubble. Bud made Revelstoke his home in 1961. He did a variety of different jobs, all in the forest industry. Bud was known as the family handyman and could fix just about anything. He took pride in all of the many creations he made of wood. Bud enjoyed working in his garden, doing puzzles, playing bingo and card games, but most of all he loved camping and fishing with his family.
Bud leaves behind his wife Betty Lue of 44 years; three children: Betty (Frank), Robert and Allan (Christa); grandchildren: Karrie (Scott), Crystal, Cole and Christopher; great grandchildren Devyn and Rylee, all of Revelstoke. Bud will be always and forever missed by his family.
