Bud leads our maintenance team and keeps our facilities looking sharp and running smoothly. Bud always has a smile on his face and is anxiously awaiting the next project. Working for NPC is Bud’s first experience in the veterinary world. He is a retired Caterpillar machinist, worked in Human Resources as a team program coordinator, and as a supervisor in the Engineering Department. Bud lives in Decatur with his wife, Elaine. He is the proud father of two daughters, Terri and Kristi. They also have three grandsons and two great-grandchildren. He and Elaine live with two dogs: Lucy the Poodle, Bello the Bernese Mountain Dog, and a cockatiel named Baby Girl. Bud says that he has a second part-time job working on his “Honey Do” list at home. When he’s not fixing something, he spends his time volunteering, watching movies, and listening to music.
