Budís greatest joy in life was teaching Godís word and greeting those who came thru the door at church on Sunday. Also working at the Good Samaritan Inn as a volunteer with all of the other workers and volunteers. He loved every soul that came thru that door for a meal.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers: Thomas Wayne Spellman, Jack Lee Spellman and his son: Curt Wayne Spellman.

Proverbs 3: 5-7

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

And lean not on your own understanding;

In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He shall direct your paths.


Do not be wise in your own eyes;

Fear the Lord and depart from evil...."
