W. D. "Bud" Choate went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, March 15, 2017.

He was born Dec. 29, 1934 in Nacogdoches. He married Myrna Casler on Jan. 28, 1955. He valued his family and his relationship with the Lord above all else.

He and his family were long-time members of Worth Baptist Church, where he served on the official board and as treasurer, before moving membership to Wedgwood Baptist and later to Trinity Bible Church. His greatest accomplishment was being a wonderful "Poz" to his five grandchildren.
His quiet demeanor and gentle smile were indicative of his love for the people around him.
