Howard J. Easton Jr.: “Bud” and “Buddy” are the nick names most of us have ever known you by, among your gang of loyal friends here in the Metro Detroit area. True to your moniker, you were always the best buddy a person could have. As one of your “close community of wonderful friends that [you] enjoyed spending time with,” I can assure you that your love and friendship will live on in all of us. You will continue to be with us in spirit as we raise our glasses to toast you, now and every time we gather. Rest in peace and serenity, my dear friend.
