Bud was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He was a loving father husband friend grandpa to even my son Caleb he taught him so much. They went many places together lots of races I myself enjoyed quite a few of those with Bub.He always had a joke to tell and a infectious smile on his face, he taught CLeb a pool trick they would bet on at the Eagles Caleb would set up three balls on the table and say he would bet he could get one under all three he rolled it under the table. They got lots of people with that one on their daily runs. We both spent lots of time with Bud We rented from him for 11 years . Bud and I decided to grow a garden one year I planted the corn which only turned out to be about 3 foot high but had tiny stalks of corn on it Bub and preacher laughed so hard at me saying I was growing corn for Chinese food.He was a great man who has left a influence on many people he made me want to be better than I was. When we first rented there Caleb asked him his name he said Bub Caleb replied I’ll always remember that cuz that’s what my mommy drinks. While I lived there Bub stoped drinking and I have long forgotten what Bubwiser taste like. He was like a grandpa to my son and I will never forget him .RIP Bud Dixon I love you Angie Cowden I’m so sorry for you Judy if you ever need to talk my number is 8123698009

“Bud” was as his name, my buddy. We meet through our love for sprint car racing. I would wave at him from my push truck and boy did I catch it if i forgot!!!!! And then can’t forget those yard sales. Most time that red truck would be either in front or behind me a the same sale. Lots of fun. I will forever be waving at him in heaven. Even last night in Florida at the USAC Midget racings with a full moon I gave him a big wave!! Will miss you my Buddy. 🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁
