They raised six children together in Whitesboro, NY. After retirement, Bud and Barb moved to Tangerine Woods in Englewood, Florida. Bud was very active in the community as a member of the “Lazy Daze”, a volunteer group that spends its time enhancing the community through various beautification and other creative projects. He was an avid bicycle enthusiast known throughout Tangerine Woods as the go-to guy for anything related to getting and maintaining bicycles. Bud was predeceased by his wife, Barbara; his parents, Henry W. and Ruth Roberts Wind; his three sisters, Murial Wilson, Virginia Lennon, Irene Hovey; and son-in-law Richard Gilliland. He is survived by his older brother William; his six children, Mary Ann (John) Spatharos, Kathleen (Frank) Powers, Donna (Robert) Heebner, Cynthia Gilliland, David (Sarah) Wind, Robert (Nancy) Wind along with fifteen grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
