Hubert Alfred (Bud) McRann

Hubert Alfred (Bud) McRann, 65, of Nelson BC. passed away peacefully surrounded by his family in his home on January 8th, 2014

He was born to the late Alfred and Bernice McRann,

April 28th, 1948 in Pouce Coupe BC.

Bud lived for his family, nothing was more important to him than spending time with his wife, 3 sons, daughter in-law, and 3 granddaughters who were his pride and joy.

While spending time with his family was his greatest joy, he also could be found travelling abroad to places like China, Thailand, Vietnam, Africa, and the Caribbean. He loved going for walks, being out on the water on his boat, and cruising in his Beamer always with his wife by his side.

Bud loved his work where he was considered to be a leader, a mentor, and friend. He was highly respected and looked up to wherever he worked. With time in-between working in highway road maintenance Bud felt lucky to be able to begin and end his career with BC Hydro working on Dam projects.

Bud is survived by his wife of 40 years, Lynn, son, Jason, son and granddaughters, Jared, Jordan, Emily and Hanna, son and daughter in-law, Justin and Holly. Bud was also survived by his 3 brothers Wayne, Dale and Barry and 3 sisters Vera, Doreen, and Marlene.

Bud: Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Son, Friend, Mentor, and Hero. To those of us who were lucky enough to have you in our life will forever live with your memory and a greater sense of love, life, and happiness.
