Obituary

Obituary for Alma D. "Bud" Wixom

Alma D. Wixom, "Bud", age 92 of Maytown, PA was called home by his Lord on November 12, 2019.
The son of Alma and Ida Wixom, Bud was born in San Bernardino, CA. He spent most of his life in southern California. While attending high school during WWII, Bud was asked to drive the school bus until he graduated in 1945 and was drafted into the U.S. Navy. However, the war ended shortly after he was drafted and he returned home to Sealy where he went into business with his father. Later he went into the construction business until he retired. Even after retirement, he continued to work repairing homes with a non-profit organization helping low-income families and the elderly.
Bud had a passion for life and always had a smile and a joke to share. He enjoyed sharing stories that included working with Walt Disney, driving Norma Jean (Marilyn Monroe), visiting with Red Skelton, and meeting Bob Hope. He loved animals and frequently brought home rescues to rehabilitate. He was a loving and kind man that always took time to help someone in need. He will be deeply missed by all that had the pleasure to know him.
Bud is survived by his wife of 48 years, Carole Spangler Wixom; two daughters Jennifer wife of Scott Peachey and Gwendolyn Easley; three granddaughters and two grandsons.
He was preceded in death by his brother David, sister Maxine, and two sons, Eric D. Wixom and John A. Raymer.
Services are to be held at the Eckenroth Funeral Home in Terre Hill, PA on Monday, November 18th at 11 AM.

Bud was a delightful neighbor to us here in Rushville Illinois for a short time. He instantly treated everyone he met as a good friend. He was very industrious, enjoyed yard work and always looking for a project. We enjoyed having him in our neighborhood and still miss him. May God comfort you, his sweet family, as you grieve this huge loss. We are better for sharing our time with him.

Dad,
Thank you so much for your love and compassion that you have shown me and so many others. You gave me my love for animals, showed my the importance of family and how to unselfishly give to others.
I will miss your smile, your laughter and your jokes.
You are a wonderful father and you will be greatly missed. Oink.

I wanted to give my sincere apologies to my Aunt Carol. In the process of Scott and I putting together dad's obituary, you were regrettable omitted in the family section as dad's sister.
Love,
Jennifer

My second father and the most incredible man i have ever known. Your tenderness toward every living soul had a lasting effect on me. Thank you for being so gentle and kind and so hard working. Thank you for loving dessert and the Lord. Thank you for turning in your giant leather office chair so gentle you never woke the cat on your desk. My love for you will live on forever with the beautiful memory of blue smiling eyes and loving rough palms. I only wish i had more opportunities to tell you how much you are loved and appreciated. Love you Bud you are missed and never forgotten
