Ralph "Bud" Stephen Michaels

August 8, 1959 — October 1, 2020

Good guy extraordinaire, Ralph “Bud” Stephen Michaels born August 8, 1959, was Promoted to Glory on October 1, 2020. Bud lived a full life and never passed an opportunity to sit with his family and friends to enjoy casting a line for the ultimate catch, or to pitch a tent and campout under the stars.

Bud is survived by his family; sisters Jan Michaels, Jane (Eric) Fiessinger; Niece, Erica Fiessinger; Nephews, Matt and Greg (Tasha) Fiessinger; Great Nieces, Victoria Fiessinger, Ryelynn Smith, Savannah Fiessinger and Brooklynn Fiessinger. Bud was preceded in death by his parents Ralph and Mattie Michaels.

Bud loved Jesus and football and spent his life enjoying the simple things. He grew up in a Salvation Army family, born in Marietta, Ohio. He grew up singing the beautiful hymns of the church and enjoying a good service at The Salvation Army. He enjoyed bowling and spending time with family when he wasn’t working hard to earn a living.

Bud took root in Lexington, Kentucky where he attended The Salvation Army Corps there and worked at the local Kroger. He worked hard and played even harder. His laid back attitude and love of life was contagious for all who spent time with him.

A Celebration of Life Service will be broadcast Live on Facebook at www.samiddletown.org on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 7:00pm.

Donations and condolences may be offered to The Salvation Army Middletown
