Irishman, Robert (Bud) George Foreman left us at 4:45 p.m. on May 14, 2014 to go dance with the leprechauns and with his wife Dorothy Anne, who predeceased him on April 12, 1995. He may also be found playing hockey, golf, bowling, badminton, hunting, softball, helping his neighbour build a fence or just having an Irish whiskey with his friends. Bud was always there to lend a hand to anyone in need or do a quiet deed when no one was looking. With a twinkle in his eye, he always had a little “story” up his sleeve. The Irishmen always have a story to tell you know.
(Bud) was born in Kamsack, Sask. On May 2, 1929 to George Andrew Foreman and Ethel Charity (Bawdon). After graduation he worked at Marshall Wells Hardware Store and Kamsack Locker Plant until he joined the RCMP on February 15, 1950.
