Randall “Randy” J. (Buddha) Budrus
Randall “Randy” Joseph (Buddha) Budrus passed away on Monday, May 25, 2020, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. A celebration of life will be held at a future date. Randy was born on June 26, 1959 in Stanley to the late Edward C. and Wanda M. Budrus. Randy grew up in Lublin, attended Lublin Grade School and graduated from Gilman High School. During high school, he played baseball and football. Later, he played on the Lublin baseball team and various local softball teams. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and especially loved deer hunting. He also enjoyed playing golf. Randy also loved racing snowmobiles and racing oval track for a period of time but especially loved both grass and snow drag racing. Randy was an active member of the Lublin Sons of the American Legion and could always be counted on to help whenever there was an area summer festival or chicken to be barbequed. One fundraiser he was especially proud of was organizing and running the Sons of the American Legion area snowmobile grass drags. In past years, Randy was an active volunteer for the Lublin Days festival and was especially proud of helping with the fireworks displays.
Randy spent his entire life in the Taylor and Clark County area, had friends too numerous to mention and seemed to know someone wherever he went. Randy was always willing to help anyone in need. Most recently he was employed at Withee Oil Company as an HVAC technician and service attendant.
