Bud was born and raised in Banff, Alberta before moving to Vancouver to pursue his education at UBC. He graduated with his Bachelors of Applied Science in Forest Engineering, where he earned his Professional Engineer designation. After graduating from university, he worked in various engineering positions, from assistant engineer to divisional engineer, project supervisor and general logging superintendent with British Columbia Forest Products before retiring from Fletcher Challenge Canada as Manager of the Mainland Coast Division in Campbell River.
He continued to consult for CIDA, spending 3 years as project director managing the operation of forest development in northeast China. Upon returning to Canada, he consulted to Seafor and FRBC before eventually co-founding Iverson Forest Management.
Bud loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping, fishing and skiing with his family and hunting with his friends. He was an adventurous cook and loved learning to prepare new dishes.
Bud will be remembered for the stalwart support he gave his friends and coworkers and his unwavering commitment to family. He was a patient listener and although he often used a minimum of words, they had lasting impact on those who heard them.
A celebration of life is scheduled for 1 pm on January 27, 2018 at New Life Baptist Church, 1839 Tzouhalem Rd, Duncan, BC.
