    To the Franzen family, Bud worked with my dad (Ubaldo Padilla) at the tie plant in the mechanic shop. As coworkers and a team they kept all that old tie plant machinery in working order. They were good friends as well during and after work hours. He was always kind to me when I visited my dad at work. May he Rest In Peace and my condolences to all o you.

    As a kid, I spent a lot of time hanging out in Bud's garage, learning about mechanics and how things worked. Many memories of the Franzen family as neighbors. My condolences. Bud
