Irvin "Bud" Blakley
It is with a sad heart that I share the news that Irvin "Bud" Blakley passed away last week. Bud had been a longtime loyal member of the Oklahoma State Home Builders Association and was the 1984 Builder of the Year.
Bud served as Chairman of the HOW Warranty Committee and had been either the State's National Director or Alternate National Director for almost 30 years. He and has wife Sue rarely missed a summer convention and could be counted upon to bring a car full of grandchildren.
Bud was also active with the Oklahoma Lumberman's Association. He was still active in that association as well.
Rest in peace, Bud Blakley. You will be sorely missed by your friends and colleagues here at the Association.
Bud Blakley, right, has
been building a long time.
Here, he welcomes a new
family to their home he's
