He was mar­ried June 3, 1961, to Kath­leen Marie Ferry, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Col­lege Park, Mary­land. He is sur­vived by his wife and two daugh­ters, Kelly Kath­leen La­timer of Washington, D.C., and Amanda L. Gan­non (Mandy) and her hus­band, Justin Gan­non of Manas­sas. Also sur­viv­ing are seven grand­chil­dren: Colin (21), Quinn (20), Tar­ran (10) and Liam (9) Gan­non and Ri­ley (16); Inalee (15) and Made­line (13) Snider. He was pre­de­ceased by his older brother, Robert Alexan­der Wa­ters La­timer, M.D. Bud was ed­u­cated at St. Ann’s on Wis­con­sin Av­enue; grad­u­ated from Gon­zaga High School, the Univer­sity of Mary­land and Ge­orge Washington Univer­sity Law School. The La­timers be­came mem­bers of All Saints Catholic Church in Manas­sas in April, 1962. Mr. La­timer was ad­mit­ted to the Virginia State Bar in Fe­bru­ary, 1963. Dur­ing a le­gal ca­reer which spanned five decades, Mr. La­timer served as a sub­sti­tute judge in Gen­eral Dis­trict and Ju­ve­nile Courts in Prince Wil­liam, Fair­fax, Fauquier and Loudoun Coun­ties. Known for his wit and kind­ness, able to put peo­ple from ev­ery walk of life at ease, Bud is re­mem­bered as a gifted teller of com­plex jokes and funny sto­ries. He was an avid golfer and a life­time mem­ber of Ev­er­green Coun­try Club. An­nual golf va­ca­tions with “the guys” to Ge­or­gia and Florida were an­other high­light of his life. Mr. La­timer served Prince Wil­liam Hospi­tal; for more than 30 years; where his brother, Bob, was the first Chief of Staff. He served as a Board Mem­ber and a term as Chair­man of the Board. He saw Prince Wil­liam Hospi­tal grow into the vi­tal health or­ga­ni­za­tion it has be­come. Love of all things nau­ti­cal, the La­timers pur­chased prop­erty along Rap­pa­han­nock River on the North­ern Neck of Virginia in 1973. They spent many, if not most week­ends, there for more than 38 years. Va­ca­tions on the Outer Banks were an an­nual fam­ily event and looked for­ward to by all from year to year. Mr. La­timer was loved and re­spected by all who knew him, his sense of hu­mor lives on in the laugh­ter of those he has left be­hind.
