(Kessler) Prosser. Bud was born in Fountain Hill on July 1, 1936, to the late Earl K. and Margaret (Weaver) Prosser. He was a 1954 graduate of Saucon Valley High School and Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science. Bud began his career at his family's pharmacy in Hellertown as a clerk, at age 14, He eventually became a pharmacist and part-owner of the Prosser Pharmacy until its closing in 1995.

He devoted countless hours to activities in the Saucon Valley community: as an umpire at baseball games, an emcee at numerous local events and as a weekly columnist in the Valley Voice newspaper. Bud Prosser earned the title "Mr. Saucon Valley," and Lower Saucon Township is justifiably proud that one of their residents was recognized for this outstanding service by the Saucon Valley Community Center on June 4, 2010.
