Bishop, Alfred F. "Bud" (25 FEB 1921 – 18 SEP 1972)

Alfred F. "Bud" Bishop, 51, manager of Thor Gas, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), died unexpectedly Monday evening at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield, where he was recovering from surgery the previous Wednesday.

Mr. Bishop was born February 25, 1921, at Mineral Point and lived in the Madison area until 1957, when he moved to Thorp.

He was a member of St. Katherine's Episcopal Church, Owen, past president and director of the Meadowview Country Club, a member of the Thor School Board, Thorp Lions Club, the Thorp Fire Department, and other civic and service clubs, and being a veteran of World War II, he was a member of the Thorp American Legion Post and Madison VFW. He was an avid sport fan and made commendable contributions to the management of Meadowview County Club during his tenure in office.

He is survived by his wife, the former Betty Nolechek of Thorp, and four sons, Bob, Rick, Bill and David, all at home.

Funeral services were held today, Thursday, September 21, 1972, at 10 a.m. at St. Bernard's Church in Thorp, with the Rev. Francis Brockman and Fr. Alex Fraser officiating. Burial was made at Riverside Cemetery.

The family asks that memorial be given to the establishment of a Bud Bishop Memorial at Thorp High School.
