Kilpatrick Funeral Home Farmerville, LA. Morris "Bud" Gilmore Services will be held on Friday, July 27, 2012 at 10:00 A.M. at the First Baptist Church of Farmerville. Officiating will be Rev. Kurt Auger. Visitation will be held Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at the First Baptist Church in the sanctuary. Burial will follow in Farmerville City Cemetery under direction of Kilpatrick Funeral Home in Farmerville. Morris better known as Bud and sometimes as Casey was born on November 16, 1931 in Oakland, Louisiana to Mamie and W.L. Gilmore. He was the middle of three boys. After graduation from Marion High School he served in the air force. Later he graduated from Barber School in Little Rock where he met and married Patty Louise Taylor in 1957. They moved to Farmerville, Louisiana where he worked in the forestry business until he retired. He was a member of First Baptist Church of Farmerville. Bud was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers, W.L. Gilmore Jr., Max Gilmore and wife Edna and his son Monty Morris Gilmore. He is survived by Pat, his devoted wife of fifty five years and his daughter Cheryl Gilmore Huey and son-in-law Keith Huey. Granddaughters: Kara Huey and Rob Perodeau, Krista Huey and Robert Thomas and grandson Taylor Huey. Great grandchildren: Kylee and Tyner Perodeau and Rhett Thomas. Daughter and family through love, Peggy Allen Rogers and sons Judd, Tate, and Thad Allen and a very special friend Sheila Teaster Ginn. After a four year courageous battle with cancer he went to be with his Heavenly Father on July 23, 2012 and reunite with his son after thirty two years apart. Bud humbly described himself as just a "good ole' boy". That's true and he was much more than that. Bud was the best of men. His patience, loving, caring and humor best describes him. Pallbearers will be Judd Allen, Thad Allen, Max Von Hearn, Bob Hanry, Ken Cooper, Courtney Hatten, Billy Garris, and Gary Albritton. Special Thanks to Hospice Compassus, especially Nicole and Otis whom he looked forward to their care. Thanks to all the special friends who showed and love in many ways that are so appreciated. The Farmerville drug coffee group was the highlight of his day. Their faithful continued support during his later days at home were uplifting.
