    My memories of Uncle Bud are all so positive that its hard for me to imagine what a loss this is for Ada, the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Bud was always kind and full of laughter. A visit with him was always a high point of any of my visits to the Miramichi. His musical talent was also a great inspiration to me personally. I\'m so happy that he lived such a long and full life and will think of him now whenever I pick up my guitar. All my love and condolences to you. David

  • Katherine and Rex Boertjes


    Dear Ada, Brenda, Debbie, Kim, and Eugene, It is with a heavy heart that I send these few words of condolence. I am very sad for your great loss of a devoted husband and a loving and caring father. Buddy was my dear uncle and I, too, am grieving his passing. To me he seemed more like an older brother than an uncle, mainly, I think, because of the few years difference in our ages. I will miss being able to visit with him and to talk with him on the phone. I am very, very sorry to have to tell you that we will not be able to make it to the funeral tomorrow. After much thought and consideration about the high number of COVID cases in N.B., we feel that it would be best for us to not travel within the province at the present time. Please know that my heart and prayers will be there with all of you. With our love, Katherine and Rex

    Aunt Ada and my Rolfe family cousins: I was very saddened to hear of Uncle Bud’s passing. His was a long life lived, and a life lived well. I’ll always hold dear the memories of summers on the Mirimichi – Buddy’s hair cuts, blueberries, woodpiles, summer bible school, music, camping trips and fish & chips – the good life! Will miss this man of gentle character, his family stories and his loving smile. God bless.
