“On behalf of the Ontario Trucking Association, I would like to express our deeply felt sadness on the passing of Bud and our sympathies to his family,” said OTA president, David Bradley. “Bud was an institution at OTA, an organization I know he loved and in so doing inspired us all. There was not a voluntary position at OTA that Bud did not hold. He was indeed as much a part of our group as the association staff. He will be greatly missed.”
