Bernard (Bud) August WEHRHAHN
Bud passed away peacefully on September 20, 2021, at the age of 80 years. He will be deeply missed by his loving wife of 52 years, Sherron, their children, grandchildren (great), siblings and numerous family and friends.
Bud worked for the Edmonton Fire Department up until his retirement. Affectionately the other firemen would refer to Bud as “Crazy Bud”, as he was always involved in one prank or another.
After retiring from the Fire Department Bud loved nothing more than helping his friends at harvest time. This is something he looked forward to every year and if you asked what he did for a living his response was proudly “I am a farmer”.
Bud loved the outdoors, he was his happiest skidoing, fishing (both summer and winter) and hunting. The kids learned very young how to fillet a fish or skin a moose. What Bud loved most was sharing his passion with his son Trevor who still carries on their traditions of hunting and fishing and the love of the outdoors.
Anyone who knew Bud knew his greatest love was his family and friends. His door was always open no matter the time of day or night, there was always a cold Pilsner waiting in the fridge. Bud enjoyed meeting new people and no matter where he went he either knew people or left with new friends.
As per Buds wishes there will be no funeral service. He will be dearly missed by all that knew him. The family asks that you share your fond memories and pictures to celebrate the man we all loved.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation to a charity of your choosing.
The family would also like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of the staff at YouVille Home in St. Albert, Alberta for their excellent care and compassion for Bud over the last few months.
