Hi Ruthie Margo and I just got home from a trip to Australia and New Zealand, and we just heard about Bud when I checked my email this morning and saw the Red Pine notice. So sorry we missed the funeral. Bud was a great guy and I am proud to have called him my friend. I know my dad and mom thought very highly of him as well. I have lots of wonderful memories of time with both of you, when I was a young guy growing up, and then when the two of you returned to RPC a few years ago when I was camp director. I loved kibitzing with Bud because he gave as well as he took, and we had lots of laughs together. I really admired the way he dealt with his vision issues too; bravely, and never complaining. If you ever need any help with anything please give me a call (613 225-5894). Take care Ted and Margo

Bud was one of the first people I met when I arrived at Carleton Athletics to play basketball in the early 70's. He was a true gentleman and was always one to laugh and joke around with me and my teammates. Getting to know Bud, and afterwards Ruth, was a real honour for me. He was very proud of his family and spoke often of them.

Dear Ruth, Peter and David and your families; We are so sad to hear that Bud Corkran...a dear family friend, along with his beloved Ruth, since childhood, has left our physical world. Bud was a funny, good and kind man. He always made the person he was speaking to feel like he most special one in the room...even if that person was just a little kid. He always had time for people. He exuded love and joy, and never let his physical challenges dampen his spirit. My heart is hurting as I write this, but, dear Ruth, I know that your dear husband, and dad to Pete and David (fondly aka “Beaver”), is smiling down on all of us and will live, forever, in our hearts. His vision is keen and sharp now, his step is firm and sure, as when we were all young, and he is probably enjoying a good Scotch with my Dad, his good, lifetime friend, Jack May, as they reminisce on all the many adventures of their youth. Know that we hold you and your families gently in our hearts and prayers and we treasure wonderful memories of cottage fun at Lake Sinclair and so very many wonderful celebrations together on this lifetime journey. May precious memories and the love of family and friends comfort and sustain each of you in the days ahead. Hugs. Penny (May) and Frank Sisson
