Theldon “Bud” Zaugg
December 23,1924 – June 4, 2012
87 Great Years
On June 4, 2012, an amazing soul passed from this life into the arms of his Lord. Bud was a Washington native who graduated from Monroe High School in 1943. He entered the armed services early to fight for our country in W.W.II, like many of the “Greatest Generation”. He was the last man rescued from the S.S. Leopoldville when it was sunk by a German torpedo on Christmas Eve, 1944. There were 804 lives lost that day.
Upon returning to civilian life, Bud established a career in corporate aviation, which became his life-ling passion. He enjoyed his chosen career for about 50 years.
One of his favorites of many interesting anecdotes was a trip in which he carried former President Harry Truman to an event in 1958. Truman sat I the co-pilot seat and “entertained his pilot with good-humored conversation”. Bud followed his passion during the golden age of corporate aviation which he found exciting and rewarding, making many good friends along the way.
A genuinely spiritual man of grace, integrity and a true gentleman, Bud knew the meaning of unconditional love for God, family, friends and life.
He is preceded in passing by his precious children, Laurie and Randy. He is survived by his loving daughters, Jan, Heidi & Katie, as well as numerous grandchildren, great grands and one great-great!
A very heartfelt thank you to Bud’s granddaughter, Lauraine, who was there for her Grandpa in a most tender and special way. Your entire family loves you Papa – So Much!
