Jesse Engle

Chastain Engle. Bud graduated class of 1956 from Sullivan High School. Post secondary education was accomplished by careful observation of the world around him. He pursued several different vocations during his life including foundry work, cable TV system installation/repair, power plant maintenance, & warehouse supervisor. But he may have been best suited for tending bar, due to the interaction with a large and varied assortment of clientele. Bud had a lifelong affinity for racing. Many of his younger days were spent at the track (or a nice straight piece of pavement on the edge of the county), however lately car shows and shows about cars served him well.

Engle who perished in the European theater of WW2; sister Betty Poole of Florida who lost her battle with cancer in 1986; son Brandon (Randy) Engle of TN; daughter Jessica McBride of Linton.
