Bud was the beloved husband of 46 years to June.  He was the loving father of Kevin Jeannette and his wife Michelle and Kristin Roussel and her husband Charlie.  He is also survived by his cherished grandchildren, Samantha and Madilynn Roussel and Claire and Emily Jeannette.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Bud’s memory may be made to either the New Jersey Humane Society, 6412 Dewey Ave., West New York, NJ  07093 or the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, P.O.
