Showing up on Twitter too... From WXYT...
Former Red Wings public address announcer Budd Lynch dies at age 95. More coming on http://WXYZ.com
In case anyone wanted to read up a little about Budd's life, here's his page on Wikipedia.
"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,
is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.
And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!
When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.
And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!
And they call him Sandy Claws!

Oh, poor Bud, to pass away during a lockout. 95 is awesome though. WTG! You'll be sorely missed. Every time he said "One minute left in the period," I'd look up and yell "Thanks, Bud!" Another hockey family member to mourn.
God Bless, Bud.
Whenever he said that, I would think to myself, "Here comes a goal from them". The Budd Lynch goal I call it.

but in retrospect..he lived a long and great life and has thousands of fans across the world that will remember his voice as a staple to the red wings history.
we should all live our lives with the dedication he brought to hockey.
i hope to shake his hand on the other side one day.
Budd, you will be missed, but not forgotten.

"If I could sum up my career in Detroit, I was a perfect goalie for the team at the perfect time. I just wanted to be a Red Wing, that's it." Chris Osgood, July 19, 2011

I knew Budd went way back with the organization, but I had no idea it was all the way back to 1949.
