    Uncle Bud. :] You will be greatly missed..especially when I arrived at grandmas, you always seemed to mosey your way over, always starting with a smart remark. Lets just start with the cookies…how my ass was going to be tremendously large. JUST because i got the last delicious chocolate chip cookie! or giving all the little kids blow pops, and said i didnt need one! also, lets mention the ripped jeans. I never did get me new pair 🙂 you WILL be greatly missed and always in my prayers. love you.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I only knew Louis from OSF but he always had a smile and laugh and loved to give me a hard time and joke around. May you all keep your memories of him alive and your hearts warm with his love.

    I am so grateful for such a strong and loving dad. Not a day goes by that we don’t think about you or something we shared together. You are giving us certain signs that we know you are with us.The memories, there are so many good ones.Jerrika is going to miss shareing her Cheetos with her grandpa and all the wise cracks he would throw at her. Gus is going to miss going around and around who is going to win the Nascar race, Chevy of course my dad would say,Gus would say Chevy has no power Ford is going to win. We are going to miss his big smile and chuckling face followed by some smart remark, everyone knows what I mean! Dad you are a strong and big hearted man who would do anything for anyone. Dad we love you and you will be greatly missed by all who new you. You were takein from us way to early but someday I will find out why.You will always be in are minds and hearts we love you always.

    I am especially grateful to Dad for raising Ed to be a strong, hard working, loving man who has become the most wonderful husband to me and the best daddy that Evan could ask for. The values that he has passed on to Ed already show in Evan. I am saddened most of all that he will not be here to help raise Evan, teach him to hunt, or help him develop that beautiful sarcasm we have all learned to love. I always had a picture in my mind of Evan at camp on the weekends with Daddy and Papa, learning the ways of the world as only they together could show him. I am so proud that I have become a part of such a close, loving family. Though my son may be too young to remember who his Papa “Uh Uh” was, atleast I have a few years of wonderful memories to pass along to him. I will make sure that he knows how important his Papa is in his life, whether he is standing beside him, or watching from above. I am so sorry to the rest of the family, who lost a son, a husband, a brother, a father, an uncle, a grandpa and a friend. He was taken way too soon. I love you Dad. You are the strongest man I have ever known. Now you can rest.

    Our deepest sympathy goes out to Betty and her family in the loss of such a great person.

    I have known Buddy for so many years and have nothing but good memories of him. He was so much fun to be around, at work or at some type of sporting event. This year when I finally bought a GM vehicle he teased me so much, telling me it took me 50 years to get smart and buy a good vehicle. He will truly be missed by everyone who knew him.

    I know that for some reason you were called away too soon. You have done a great job in raising a beautiful, caring family, and they will always carry you with them and remain a tight clan. Your wit and jokes will be missed – but most of all the big smile and chuckle that followed each one. It hurts to have you gone but we know you are not in pain. I mean sincerely when I say to you REST IN PEACE and smile down on us as you watch over us. Bet it was sure nice to see Dad Tryan.

    Love Chris

    Please know that the Hansen Families will have you in our thoughts and prayers. Bud and I grew up on hunting, motorcycles and repairing cars in his dad’s garage and having many great times. He will be missed but not forgotten. I will always remember his infestious laugh and wonderful sense of humor. Having all of his kids at Esky High School as the principal I know first hand what a giving and caring father he was to all of them.

    I’m so sorry to hear of the Loss of your Husband and Father. Growing up around your Dad was always fun for me, He was always kind and generous with me. I will always remember him with fond memories. He would joke, call me the muskrat and give me a hard time. But, I knew that was his way of communicating. I still have the watch that he gave me for Christmas one year. I will never forget him. Your family was very important to me growing up and I always envied the closeness of the siblings. Hopefully, that relationship that you all have will help you to be strong through such a terrible time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love Nicole

    Bud was the best father-in-law a son-in-law could ask for! He was always the one to get stuff done and he would have given you the shirt off his back. I would have done anything for that man. I was lucky enough that he allowed me to marry his daughter and become part of his family. I am very honored and greatful for the memories that he and I shared. He was so much more than my wifes dad he was one of my best friends, my confidant. He was a man that had great values, a strong family bond ,and a work ethic that would drive you to get anything done. He was a man that I respected, a man that I looked up to, and a man that I loved and thought of as my very own father. Our family is going to miss him so much that words cannot descibe. My, Kari, and Karias’ love for him was so strong we were all like best friends not only family. “littlte girl” is going to miss him alot but we will keep his memories alive cuz no one can take them from us. Bud, if you can hear me I will help carry on your great legacy and most important I will help take care of your family, WE ALL LOVE YOU DAD AND YOU WILL BE MISSED GREATLY!!!!!

    My dad means something different to everyone who loves him. To me, he is one of my best friends. I spent a lot of time just hanging out with him and my mom. Hanging at camp with them was always fun. We would ride wheelers, watch deer, do some odd jobs, cook out, and play lawn games like bean bags or horseshoes. He was always there for me, wheather I needed advice or my oil changed in my truck or someone to take care of my daughter (even though he won’t change diapers!) Karia adored him and hopefully she will remember the special times they shared feeding the neighborhood horse, Zip or riding around camp or coloring or reading together or picking apples or gardening or whatever it was they were up to for the day. She had her papa wrapped around her little finger. She was his “Little Girl”. There will be a void in our lives forever. I will keep him alive with memories and will not let his memory fade. I am proud he is my father and I am honored to be a part of a legacy that such a fine and respected man left behind. I Love You Dad.
