Celebration of Life: Services for ‘Captain Bud’ Rager

(ROCKWALL, TX – Jan. 17, 2017) Oscar “Captain Bud” Rager passed away peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday, December 28, 2016, at the age of 62.  A celebration of his life will be held Saturday, February 4th at 2:00 PM at the Lakeside Village Community Center in Rockwall, TX.

As many of you know through your interactions with Captain Bud over the years, he truly loved spreading joy through his singing and by always putting others first.  Although he will be greatly missed by those of us left on earth, may we keep his spirit alive through our memories of him, while being comforted knowing that he now sings with the heavenly choir of angels.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bud’s honor to the American Cancer Society.
