Obituary for Herbert Budd Thomas

Herbert “Bud” Thomas passed away March 12, 2018 at Boulder Community Hospital. He was 63 years old.

Bud was born on July 10, 1954 in San Diego, CA to Leo and Josephine (Jerge) Thomas. He spent his early years in a loving home with his sister Donna, mother Josephine and step-father Jess Sultzer until his mother’s death when he was 7.

Bud worked hard to overcome much of the adversity he faced in his adolescence and young adult life. Despite a reading disability he was able to obtain his GED and an Associate’s Degree. He went on to work as a welder and in the printing industry before joining a counter top finishing company for 12 years.

In 2011 Bud was hit by a car and became disabled. In 2013 Bud moved to Colorado to be closer to his sister Donna and brother-in-law Gary. He resided since 2013 at Applewood Living Center in Longmont.

At Applewood, he was loved by many staff and residents. Although he was a character and had a real ornery streak, he cared for other residents and the staff, often sharing great stories of his life and experiences. Bud loved his dogs Sassafras, Miss Thing and Thunder and often visited Sassy and Missy at his sister’s home.

He was preceded in death by his parents. And is survived by his Sister Donna Sewell and her husband Gary; and his dogs Sassy and Missy (and Thunder back in Kansas). He also leaves behind many friends and caretakers who helped make his life full and rewarding.

A memorial service will be held at 3:00pm Friday March 16, 2018 at Applewood Living Center in Longmont, CO. Cremation entrusted to Ahlberg Funeral Chapel and Crematory. Visit to share condolences.
