Bud was born on November 10, 1954, in Louisiana, MO, to Orville and Laura Marjorie Zumwalt. He was a successful sales manager for a construction company for about 22 years before his illness forced an early retirement. When able, he enjoyed spending time on the water fishing and boating, working outside in his garden, reading, and spending time with his many friends, family, and grandchildren. Bud was known for his quick wit and great sense of humor. He was an important part of not only his family, but also his community. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Liver Foundation, c/o Bibb- Veach Funeral Home or at www. liverfoundation.org, the Assembly of God Church or to the Clopton Alumni Association. Services will be under the direction of Bibb-Veach Funeral Home.
