Gordon A. “Bud” Haggin, 87, of South Bend passed away Sunday, Nov. 17, 2019.

He was born May 20, 1932, in Chicago, Illinois, to the late Rozell Stoner and Dorothy Brown.

On Aug. 18, 1961, in South Bend, he married Barbara (Fenzau) Haggin, who survives.

Bud served his country in the U.S. Air Force. He was stationed in Africa and England where he worked on airplane engines.

In 1956, he began work as a glazier, later becoming a journeyman in the trade and retiring in 1997. After retiring, he drove vans for Martin’s Supermarkets for 10 years.

In his free time, Bud traveled with his wife and family, taking road trips across the country and enjoying several cruises to Hawaii, Alaska and the Bahamas, collecting hats everywhere they went.

Bud enjoyed crossword puzzles, going to auctions, working on his miniature train displays and tinkering around with CB radios, using the handle “Glass Breaker.”

Bud was a loving husband and wonderful father. He was a hard worker and couldn’t stand to sit still.
