100 Years Of Celebration For Raymond (Bud) Rose


Mount Clemens, Michigan — Today, Prosecutor Lucido joined family and friends to celebrate Mr. Raymond (Bud) Joseph Rose on his 100th Birthday.

Bud was born in Hong Kong, China on August 30th 1921 to Millard and Frieda Rose. He then lived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada before his family moved to a new home on Trumbull Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, when Bud was only 14 years old. It was here that Bud met his bride, Mary Tackx, whom he married in November of 1943.

Bud is a true American hero. He joined the army and during World War II served in Gou rock, Scotland aboard the Queen Elizabeth. As a member of the 28th infantry division, Bud landed in Normandy, on Omaha Beach in July 1944, and later saw the success of his efforts at the liberation of Paris. Additionally, he was a part of the first allied division to breach German soil.

His dedication to his country does not end there. After suffering a mortar blast to his chest at the Battle of the Bulge, Bud was sent home for a fourteen month recovery. For his heroism, Bud received two purple hearts, and a letter of commendation from President Truman. Bud continued to work hard, succeeding in a 34-year career at Alexander and Hornung, as a sausage maker.

Following retirement, Bud has spent most of his time fishing, golfing, and swimming. Sadly, Bud's wife Mary passed away in 2016, at the age 92 years. Bud has truly been blessed with a daughter, three grandchildren, six great grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren.

"Bud deserves our sincerest gratitude and applause on the celebration of his 100th Birthday," stated Prosecutor Lucido. "I am honored to join with Bud's family and friends in wishing him another year of health and happy memories."
