In memory of
Alexander (Bud) Debrody, age 74, of Suwanee, GA, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, February 20, 2021, after battling heart and kidney disease. He is survived by his loving companion Brenda Thompson (15 yrs), Suwanee, GA; children, Marc (Corey) Debrody, Alpharetta, GA, Lisa (Kevin) Gavin, St. Johns, FL, and six grandchildren (Austin, Grace, Kendall, Anna, Owen, and Caroline). Bud is preceded in death by Marc and Lisa's mother, Bonnie Evans Debrody, of Dillsburg, his wife of 30 years. Bud was born March 14, 1946, in Hanover, Germany, and spent his youth in New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada, where he developed a lifelong passion for ice hockey. As a member of the '65 Niagara Falls Flyers Memorial Cup and the '68 Hershey Bears Calder Cup-winning teams, Bud enjoyed a nine-year professional hockey career. While his proudest professional moment may have been scoring against the Russian National Team goaltender (Vladamir Tretiak), he was most happy in recent years celebrating his grandchildren's successes, attending grandkids activities, and attending Atlanta Black-Tie events with Brenda. Memorial services will be held at a later date. "In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Heart Association."
