We honor the memory and service of our longtime colleague, partner and friend David G. Budd. David was a practicing lawyer and member of the bars in Ohio and Florida for almost 60 years combined, most of which were in Collier County, Florida. In 2013, he was recognized by The Florida Bar as a 50 year Senior Counselor. He was truly a lawyer’s lawyer. He loved the practice of law, took great pride in our profession, and was loved by his clients whom he enjoyed helping while working at his private practice office from 1984 to 2007 and with other lawyers at Grant Fridkin Pearson for the past 14 years. David’s expertise in Business and Corporate Law surpassed many others. We and the clients who looked to him will miss his wise counsel and his humility, understated wit and good humor. David is survived by his wife of 57 years, Barbarann of Naples FL, his daughter Anne McDowell of Philadelphia PA and his son David Glenn Budd, II of Asheville NC.
