The following poem is in Bud’s memory written by his son, Bob:

As you may have noticed Dad had a passion for old trucks. Maybe he know that a new truck was only a dream. He was proud of his industry and truck driving friends.

Mr. Moe loved to go North, South, East or West. I think he liked West the best! Lugging cheese so everyone was pleased. On his way he went. He hauls milk for the nation’s babies, dresses for the nation’s ladies and steel for the nation’s war machines. Bread for the nation’s breakfast tables. The road is home. He drives today so the world can live tomorrow. He lived by the code of the road and passes no man by who needs a helping hand! With a hand on the wheel and a hand on the radio tuning and tuning to find country stations on the AM Band, Route 66 or the Lincoln Highway. He was probably there in his day, cowboys of the highways and byways. The LCC or DOT was a fearful sight. But a good truck stop coffee shop down the road would make the day bright. Make it home by Friday night, have some fish and all is right.

Yes he loved to go that Mr. Moe.
