I was fortunate to have known Bud. We taught several classes together on "Administrative Effectiveness" and Bud was a very good instructor. He will be missed by all who knew him. Gary Ruppel, HP retiree

I am very sorry to hear the passing of Bud Eldon. I worked for Bud when I joined the Santa Chara IC Department back in the 1970's. Bud was the manufacturing manager at the time. We spoke often after I moved on to HP Labs. I lost track of Bud during the late 1980's. I always remember him as soft spoken, a kind gentleman, and a friend. Although he has passed, he will always be remembered.

In 1960 Bud Eldon was working for HP in Palo Alto - his son Tony and I were in Dick Empey's 4th grade class at Ohlones Elementary School which was at the time on Charleston Road. One day, Bud brought an HP Oscilloscope, signal generator, and decade counter to our class to demonstrate the concepts of frequency and measurement. Each student in the class got to go up and adjust the frequency and watch the scope waveform change and read the output on the decade counter. I was fascinated, and decided at that time that HP would be a pretty good place to work. I had one opportunity to reconnect with Bud at HP around 1974 when he was a lab manager at HP Santa Clara Division - I exercised the "open door policy" to go visit him and say "hi" even though I was "just" a summer student intern in one of the computer divisions. He was gracious as always, and remembered times I had been at their house. Prayers and condolences to Betty, Tony, and the rest of the family.
