September 25, 1936 – April 18, 2016
Bud passed away, surrounded by loved ones, at his home late on April 18th.
Bud was born on September 25, 1936 to Evron and Maxine Shuman in Poplar, MT. He was raised in Wolf Point, MT, where he grew up as the son of the sheriff of Roosevelt County. From high school he enrolled in the Navy, where he played football for the Navy unit and fought in the Korean War. From there, he continued his education at Western Montana College in Dillon MT. There Bud became a four year starter and Hall of Fame football player, which earned him an invite to try out for the Chicago Bears under legendary coach George Halas.
Bud’s true passions in life were family, friends, and football (in no particular order)! When it came to family, Bud was a true hero in the sense of living life to the fullest. There was no shortage of impact felt in the day-to-day shenanigans in the Shuman household. Whether it be from tormenting his children for a day of education, or letting the family bird loose on his wife. Brotherly love requires many talents. According to Edna, the eldest sister, Bud was marvelous in this field. Upon orders from mom (Maxine), Bud reluctantly took the girls to the movies. Where he proceeded to make them walk and sit in the front row. “Mom, he needs a spanking” Edna would suggest.
“I loved him” says JoAnn. “I remember having a deal with him in college, he would get me a date if I did his homework” jokes JoAnn. “Needless to say, the homework was for nothing, I met the love of my life on Christmas break, away from college”.
The youngest sister Margaret speaks of Bud’s loving side with tears of joy. Margaret’s daughter Margo, who was born with a disability, was something everyone was unsure about. With a fear of difference, Margo confronted Lloyd with a gentle tap on his knee, and it was game over. “He has never put her down since”, recalls Margaret. Kaden, Bud’s first born grandson, was lucky enough to spend time with his papa before he had his stroke. Bud and Kaden would venture off at 9:00 in the morning only to return with a fresh haircut, a container of Pringles, and a Gatorade.
Bud was and will always be a huge supporter of the local football teams. For over 15 years he served as a board member and president of Helena Small Fry Football where he was a major contributor of the mass talent to come out of our Capital City. Boe and Jason, Bud’s two sons, want to remind all the youth football players, that while they are getting all their equipment in those sheds, to remember Bud Shuman, the reason they get to play the great sport of football in the town of Helena.
Bud was a member of many organizations through his years. Shriners and Elks club were just some of the many, but Bud’s favorite was the BS Club.
Bud will forever live on through his sons, Boe (Kami) and Jason (Kris). He is survived by his wife, Judy; and his sisters, Edna (Gene) Songer of Spokane WA, JoAnn (Dick) Miller of Glasgow MT, Margaret (Jim) Thomas of Helena MT, and daughter, Laurie Davis. Bud is also survived by his grandchildren, Kaden, Carson, Mackenzie, Lantz, and Bearek; along with several nieces, nephews, cousins, and too many friends to list. He was preceded in death by his father, Evron, his mother, Maxine, and son, Rusty Shuman.
A Memorial Service celebrating Lloyd’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 at Anderson Stevenson Wilke Funeral Home, 3750 N. Montana Avenue, Helena. A reception will follow the memorial service at the Fort Harrison Service Club at Fort Harrison. Please visit below to offer a condolence to the family or to share a memory of Bud.
