Services for Donald Lee “Bud” Roetter, 77, of Marysville will be held at 11 a.m., Sat., July 9, 2016 at the Edline-Yahn & Covington Chapel in Kent with a Celebration of Life immediately following at Bremmeyer Logging. Bud passed away on July 1, 2016, surrounded by his loving family. Bud was a Veteran of the U.S. Army where he served as an electrician. Following his military service, he had a long successful career in the trucking industry retiring from Kenworth Northwest.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward Roetter and Helen Maloney Roetter. Bud is survived by his two daughters, Shanon Snead and husband, Bryan Snead of Lake Tapps, WA and Melissa Voelzke and husband, Steve Voelzke of Longview, TX; he was a proud Grandpa to three grandchildren, Alex Voelzke, Savannah Voelzke and Luke Snead. He is also survived by two brothers, James Roetter and Raymond Roetter.
Bud’s greatest joy came from morning coffee with friends, Taco Tuesdays, early Saturday breakfast, adding to his impressive shoe collection, travels which included watching his grandchildren play football and volleyball for the Arkansas Razorbacks, and holding his newest grandson.
Dad, Grandpa and friend to many…you are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.
