I was shocked to learn of the passing of my long-time friend and mentor, Bud Jeffries.
I first met Bud in 2004 when I called him up after reading one of his books.
It wasn’t just his immense strength, but his honorable character that caught my attention. We hit it off right from the beginning.
His humble spirit and faith in the Lord were consistent over the years.
I was blessed to host Bud for a Strongman seminar in 2010 and later to attend two of his Super Human Training workshops.
He was one who taught me the value of partial lifts and isometrics among many other things.
I met Bud for lunch in Lakeland a couple of years ago and he was the same off camera as he is on.
He was a genuine human being.
He never stopped learning and improving himself.
Bud and Heather had one son, Noah, who was just like Bud.
Noah went to heaven a few years ago and now Bud is with him.
Rest in peace, my friend.
