Bud Frasca's wife passed away

#1

Post by OnTheBrink »

Claudia Frasca, Bud's wife, passed away Sunday evening when her pacemaker malfunctioned. For those of you who know Bud, you know how he cherishes and loves his wife and their two kids. His daughter Bria said services would be Tuesday, June 11.

Bud's family is with him now. In the coming weeks following the services when his family has returned home, his friends will be of great importance.

If possible pass on my prayers and condolences. Such a tough thing to go through. I first met Bud when he visited Andy Puyans Creative Sports in Walnut Creek, CA in the mid 1970's He told me he had worked at William Mills Store in New York City May peace be with him. Paul

I had read somewhere that Bud was taking a break from the business and was unsure about its future after this happened over a year ago. No intent of making light of any situation here at all.

It has been a year and half. I am not going to put a timeline on someone's grieving, but i think at some point if you run a business people have the right to ask questions.

joep, I second you sentiments. jeffbram's post was not in the least improper. Some people like to besmirch at the drop of a hat.

For the last year Bud's health has not been the best – currently dealing with cancer added to Agent Orange side affects from Vietnam. His daughter has moved from Texas back home to help.

Feel free to reach out to me if you're not receiving returned email or phone calls.
