Condolences to Joyce and family. Sad to hear this news today. I will always remember Bud as my favorite Uncle when I was a little kid, especially his warm smile. I have many good 'fishing day' and Otterman family reunion memories with him that I will cherish. I pray that the Lord's grace and comfort be with you all at this time. Love, Lance

DearJoyce, Dave, Sandy, Julie and Dennis. One of the best things I could hear when I was a youngster was "we're going to Buds!" It always meant lots of laughs, tall tales, "Fishing Day" at the creek, a local history lesson, a few new words, and just a lot of fun with the family. Good old Uncle Bud was quite a character. It seems like an era has come to an end. I think there will be a lot of laughs to go with the tears at his send off. We'll be thinking of all of you. Be well, Brent and Family.

Dear Joyce, Dave, Sandy, Dennis and Julie; Our deepest sympathies and our thoughts are with you. I used to live across the road while growing up and many great memories. I still remember a few Christmas dinners we had and the odd beverage I had with Bud. We plan on being at the visitation on 14th. Thinking of you.
Larry & Lynn

My deepest condolences for your loss. Although I only met Bud once, I knew immediately that he was an Otterman and that he was my family. My mother was Lois Otterman, daughter of Arthur Otterman. Bud was so helpful with family history during my visit there several years ago. I will always remember him.
