Bud was born July 8, 1990 in Montrose, Colorado the son of James and Grace (Crumley) Foster. He attended school in Torrington and was a member of the National Honor Society. He graduated from Torrington High School in May of 2009 with some very special people. He then attended and graduated from Eastern Wyoming College where he again made Honor Society and received his Associate's Degree. From there he began working toward his Bachelor's in secondary education with a major in History at the University of Wyoming.

We were only able to watch over him for twenty-two short years. During that time, Bud loved to participate in various sports, fishing, hunting, and outdoor activity events. His favorite football team was the fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Go fighting Irish. So, of course, his favorite color was green. He never met a stranger and was a friend to all, and he met some amazing people. He always had a positive attitude. Scouting was an important part of his life and he received his Eagle Scout Award when he was fourteen years old. He only needed twenty-one selected merit badges to earn but Bud earned over thirty-seven merit badges besides receiving the Community Service and Junior Leadership training awards. Our son and brother was an outstanding man and we were proud to have had him be part of our lives. We love him very much. Bud's final wish would be that all who knew him will remember to tell their loved ones each and every day, "I love you". Life is precious and you may not get that chance tomorrow. Don't forget to say it today. We were blessed to have had the opportunity to tell Bud that we loved him.
