Bud and and I were fellow pilots at American Airlines. What a pleasure it was to fly with Bud. He was professional in every way with a natural, easy going way. There was always lots to talk about, and lots of laughs. Was so sorry to hear of his illness and death; his spirit will live on. My sympathies to his family and friends. My God bless each in a special way during this time of sadness.

We have been traveling and just found out about Bud’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with Bud for many years during and after his service to the Town’s ASCC. He was a prince of a man and cared deeply about his community, architecture, and protecting the Portola Valley values. He loved his family and we shared many stories of family, skiing and just life as we watched our children grow. Linda and I extend our deepest sympathies to Lynn and the entire Eisberg family as you work through this time. To say Bud will be missed is a huge understatement.
