Bud Muser died April 11, 2004, at Pawleys Island, S.C., where he lived with Edna, his wife of 58 years.
Born in New York City, he grew up in Ridgewood, N.J., graduated from high school there, and entered Princeton as an engineering student. Navy service in the Seabees from 1943-46 took him to Hawaii and the Pacific Islands. He returned to marry Edna McComb and complete his degree in economics in 1949. He especially enjoyed interclub baseball at Princeton.
Bud's career was with Purolator Products Inc. in Atlanta and Charlotte, then in New Jersey as treasurer for Edgcomb Steel, and finally, with Stihl Chain Saws. In 1980 he moved to Pawleys Island, becoming a Realtor and enjoying golf, and with his children, Little League Baseball and Boy Scouts.
He is survived by his wife; sons Maurice III and Richard; daughters Katharine Garnier and Christine Zimmerer; seven grandchildren; a great-granddaughter; and his sister, Carolyn Ruprecht. To them all, the class extends its sympathy.
