He joined the Marines in 1945 and was stationed in San Diego CA. Bud and Lucile Wiedeman exchanged vows on November 27, 1946 at the Methodist Church in Concordia, KS. After his discharge from the Marines, they made their home in Norfolk NE. Bud worked for the Chicago Northwestern Railroad for several years. Shortly after, Bud moved his family to Omaha, where he worked with Greyhound Bus Lines for 30 years. He retired from Greyhound in 1983. Bud and Lucile traveled extensively throughout the Southern United States, eventually living part time in their homes in Fremont and Texas. Bud was a 32nd degree Mason and a member for 50+ years of both the Masons and the Eastern Star. He was also a member of the American Legion, York Rite bodies, Knights Templar and Shriner's International. In Bud's younger years he enjoyed attending parades and the Shrine Circus as a member of the motorcycle patrol. During those years he traveled extensively with the patrol throughout the mid-west and Canada supporting Shriner's Hospital. Bud was immensely proud of children and grand-children. They were not only the light of his life but his biggest supporters. His children and grandchildren loved to hear his stories, amazing true life stories. Bud was a major story teller, the family keeper of memories, dates, and happenings. He had an amazing 95 year journey; he took his family and friends with him through his memories and stories.
