Morris Hatcher Budd, the son of Herbert and Emma (Leach) Budd, was born on May 7, 1932, in Delaplane, Va. He grew up in Virginia, where he graduated from Marshall High School. From 1952 to 1956, Morris served as a hydraulic mechanic with the U.S. Air Force. He was stationed stateside as well as England and Africa. In 1953, while stationed in Sioux City, he met his future wife.

On Oct. 2, 1954, Morris was united in marriage with Donna Lynn at First United Methodist Church in Sioux City. Three children were born to this union. Morris worked at North American Manufacturing and Devoe Paint before becoming a police officer. Morris served with the Sioux City Police Department, starting in 1964 and retiring in 1987. Part of his police duty was to work traffic and security in the stockyards, where he also operated a small trucking company.

He was a member of Mayflower Congregational Church, where he served as a trustee and deacon. He also held memberships in the American Legion, Policeman's Association and the Iowa State Police Chiefs' Association. Morris loved to hunt, fish, and cherished the time spent with his family.

Morris is survived by two sons, William Budd and wife, Kathy of Taylor, Texas, and Douglas Budd and wife, Debbie of Austin, Texas; a daughter, Arlynn Vega and husband, Richard of Austin, Texas; two grandchildren, Brittany and Joshua Budd; a sister, Ann Woodward; a sister-in-law, Arlene Baldes; a niece, Linda Cron; and grandnieces Erin Small and Gina Roost.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife; and a brother, Thomas.
