The son of Herbert Raymond and Irma Louise (Betz) Weiser, Bud was born on February 2, 1934 in Grimes, Iowa. He grew up in Grimes and graduated from Grimes High School. Upon his graduation, Bud became a member of the United States Army. After active duty status, Bud spent over 30 years as a member of the Army Reserves. Bud worked as a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service. He enjoyed contributing to the Iowa economy via Iowa Lottery Scratch Tickets. Most of all, Bud loved time with family; whether it was at a family reunion or a grandchild's sporting event. He was even known to "help" the referees or umpires from time to time at the grandchildren's events. Bud was always very proud of his German heritage and was a lifetime member of the Weiser Family Association. Bud was a member of Hope Lutheran Church of Des Moines.
Those left to honor Bud's memory are his two sons, Mike (Jaye) Weiser of Adel and Mark (Lisa) Weiser of West Des Moines; dear friend, Eileen Berger of Colfax; seven grandchildren, David, Chris, Matt, Kaitlyn, Austin, Braden, and Shelby; one sister, Joyce (Ron) Dorrell of Palm Springs, California; two brothers-in-law, Charlie Diener and Everett Randall; one sister-in-law, Joanne Weiser; and several nieces and nephews. Bud was preceded in death by his parents, five sisters, Marge Randall, Mary Jane Randall, Joan Diener, Pat Weiser, Polly Faidley, and one brother, Jim Weiser.
