Tragic news, The Passing Of A Long Time FReeper
Feb 2, 2011 | Internet Golfer

Posted on 02/02/2011 1:33:06 PM PST by Internet Golfer

The passing of Anthony "Budge" Rahe


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Daily Prayer; Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: budge; passing
It is with a broken heart, that I must announce the passing of a long time FReeper, and friend to many on FR. Budge Rahe passed away yesterday at his home in Pine Bluff Arkansas.

Budge and I have been friends for many years, and would talk to each other almost every day. I talked to him Monday evening, and he was doing fine. Tuesday morning, I got a call from Budge's boss, and he told me that Budge had passed away.

I will be in contact with Budge's nephew, and will post any further news that I find out.

There was a thread about Budge’s passing on FR yesterday-—it had many, many replies, but I can’t remember who posted it right now.

I’ve lost a good friend....

DC Chapter ping.

Don’t know how many of you got to meet Budge when he came to DC about 10 years ago. He will be sorely missed.

God bless Budge. May he Rest in Peace.

Yes he was. We learned through the years that we had lived in the same area as “youngsters”. I’ve lost two good friends recently: Aaron Zelman of JPFO, and now
Budge. May they both rest in peacae.

What sad news, Buford... thanks for the alert. Wow, it's been a long time since I've heard Budge's name on FR, yet after a quick check of his posts, I find that he has been very active here, as recently as 1/31/11. I believe I do remember meeting him in DC back during the end of the Clintoon era.

God bless Budge. May he Rest in Peace.

Amen to that, and I will remember his family and friends in my prayers...

I had no idea Aaron Zelman passed away. That is a loss indeed.

Yes, I’m still in a bit of shock—Aaron and I had become good friends. There is at least one thread, and maybe more on FR about Aaron.
