Bud (Albert John) Schwinden, aka, “The Schwindler” is hunting pheasants and deer up above now. Bud joined his wife, Donna, and six of their seven dogs in heaven on October 16, 2011. Bud was at home surrounded by his family and his dog when God’s angels tenderly carried him home.
Bud, a lifelong resident of Fargo, ND was born on August 7, 1926, the first child of Moritz and Agnes Schwinden.
Bud loved working. At the age of 84, he finally retired from Border States Paving Company. Work meant friendship to Bud (Lloyd, Tom, Keith, Nancy, Dan, Lori, shop guys, and all who would wave to Bud while he was in his pickup truck driving around the FM area). Bud loved hunting, especially deer and pheasant hunting with his son, John and dogs. But most of all, Bud loved his family. We will miss your unconditional support, humor and unselfish ways. We could always count on you. You are and will always be in our hearts until the twelfth of never.
Bud is survived by his three children, Mary Kay Schwinden-Schmidt (Ed Schmidt); Cindy Schwinden (Mike Weiss); and John Schwinden (and his three daughters, Brianna, Katie and Abby); his sisters and brothers: Evelyn (Fischer), Elaine (Adrian Cihak), Don (Pat), Ken (Norma), and Morrie (Cathy) Schwinden. Bud was preceded in death by his high school sweetheart and beloved wife, Donna.
Bud said that he had no regrets, just great memories.
“Daddy Bud we will miss you so very much.”
