Edward F. 'Bud' Braun
LEAD - A devoted Husband, proud Father, beloved Grandfather, and dear Friend to so many people unexpectedly passed away from a cerebral hemorrhage on November 19, 2002.
Edward F. "Bud" Braun was born on October 14, 1925, in Richardton, North Dakota, to Raphael and Anna Braun. After being raised on the family farm near Haynes, North Dakota, with two brothers and three sisters, Bud decided that farming was not his calling in life and joined the United States Navy in 1943. Following his overseas tour of duty during World War II, Bud moved to Lead, South Dakota, where he would spend the rest of his days with family, friends, and co-workers. It was in Lead where Bud also met his beloved wife of 52 years, Mary Katherine (Milos) Braun. They married on September 27, 1950, at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, and raised two sons, Lonnie Ray of Rapid City, South Dakota, and David Lee of Pierre, South Dakota.
Bud worked for the Home-stake Mine as a laborer, a contract miner, in research & planning, and as a shift boss. After 34 years of dedicated service to Homestake, he retired in January of 1983 as Safety Director. Following his retirement, he also worked for five years as a safety consultant for Pete Lien & Sons in Rapid City.
Bud loved to hunt and fish, especially with his sons and his special friends. He enjoyed working in his basement workshop, creating everything from bookends with Homestake rock to wall clocks with old weathered wood. He was particularly proud of his cabin that he built over the years near O'Neil Pass. Whether it was Bud and Mary's home in Lead, or their cabin at O'Neil Pass, the front gate was always open to either friends or strangers for a fresh cup of coffee, some good conversation, and good old hospitality. Bud also took great pride in volunteering his time and talents to those in need to community tasks, and to church activities, never wanting the credit, but always doing the job that needed done.
Bud is survived by his beloved wife Mary of Lead; his son Lonnie and wife Teri of Rapid City; his son David and wife Darlene of Pierre; four grandchildren - Jennifer, Tempe, Mandy, and Andrew; one great-grandson, Clement; two brothers; and one sister. He was preceded in death by his mother, his father, and two sisters.

9 a.m. with the Funeral Mass following at 10 a.m. on Friday, November 22, 2002, at
St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Lead, under the direction of Carlsen & Aldinger Funeral Homes of Sturgis. Interment will follow at the Holy Cross Cemetery. Memorial donations can be made in memory of Bud to the Homestake Mining Museum or St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Lead, South Dakota.
