Steven Donald Budd, 74, of Colpitts Settlement passed away at his home on Tuesday, February 19, 2019. Born in Gallagher Ridge, NB, he was the beloved spouse of Lois Budd nee Boomhour, for over 52 years and son of the late Cleveland and Irene (Trites) Budd.
Steve was a retired Cpl. for the Canadian Armed Forces. He had his journeyman’s license as a mechanic and worked in Manitoba for some time and for CN Rail. He later started his own Logging Company producing pulp and firewood. He was a jack of all trades and a hands-on learner. Steven was ambitious and always completed what he set out to do. He felt most at home when he was outdoors. He enjoyed tapping trees to make maple syrup, and building many things, including his sugar shack, his log home, his own band-saw, and a large kitchen table that served his greatest passion, dinners enjoyed with his large family.
In addition to his wife, Steven is survived and sadly missed by his children, Steven Nelson Budd (Lui) of Greenwood, NS, Kristal Irene Lounsbury nee Budd (Danny Goddard), and David Nathan Budd (Nikki Goguen-Budd) all of Salisbury; grandchildren, Steven Budd of Fredericton, Ryan Budd (Morgan) of Halifax, Micheala Lounsbury of Red Deer, AB, Nathan Lounsbury, Tyler and Brittny Goddard (Ryan) all from the greater Moncton area, and TJ (Tony) Goguen (Carrie) of Red Deer, AB; siblings, Beth Dawson (Murray) Of Bible Hill, NS and Phillip Budd (Violet) of Gallagher Ridge; numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews; special friends Joan & Alan Hill and Ralph MacArthur; and many honourary members of the Budd family.
Besides his parents, Steven was predeceased by his infant brother, Robert; sisters, Ellen Price (Garnett), Cathy Quinlan (Byron), Brenda Rose, Christina Crossman (George), Oney Beers (Benny), Shirley Pitre (Vincent), as well as several nephews.
