Irvin H. “Bud” Amen Jr., 79, of Boca Grande, passed Friday, June 21, 2013.
He was born Nov. 20, 1933, in Clayton, Ill., to Eileen (nee Maus) and Irvin H. Amen.
Bud had served in two arms of the U.S. military: the U.S. Navy and Air Force. After working with the Engelhard family, where he met his wife of 42 years, Mona, Bud settled in Boca Grande, in the early ’60s.
His generosity was well known in the community as were the many good times held at the family establishment, the Laff-A-Lott.
Bud is survived by his daughter, Angelique (Erick) Amen-Magi of Ontario, Canada; son, Andrew Amen of Boca Grande; and three grandchildren, Hannah, Michael and Aleksander.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, July 12, 2013, at the Lighthouse State Park at the south end of Gasparilla Island.
Arrangements are by Farley Funeral Homes and Crematory.
