It is with sadness that we report the passing of class scribe Francis “Bud” Lovett at the age of 101 on November 4, 2023. In his final years, Bud, a veteran of World War II, was passionate about securing the legacy of Camp Hale in Leadville, Colorado, and was very active in working toward making it a national monument. For decades he faithfully kept his classmates connected and he cemented their bonds to each other and to Wesleyan. When he gradually became the last of his classmates, Bud elected to continue writing to all alumni each issue—something we were appreciative of and enjoyed. Bud was one of a kind. We extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends. And, as Bud would say, “Slán go fóill.”
