Highland Park Camp Meeting bids farewell to a dear friend

With sadness, we want to take a moment to remember Charles “Bud” Hollenbach, a friend of Highland.  Bud was killed in an automobile accident last Friday, October 17, 2014. He was a retired Pennridge High School teacher and , football coach.

As a member of the Pennridge community, I had the privilege of being under Bud’s guidance, and his physical,  educational, and spiritual leadership.  I was blessed in my youth, by going to First Evangelical United Brethren Church, at Fifth and Market Streets in Perkasie, which is now known as The First United Methodist Church. As such I was the recipient of multiple mentors. In the course of our life's journey, we may be lucky to have one mentor, teacher, or coach, who makes significant  impact on the person we become.

I had many, of which Bud is so counted.  His wife, Maggie was my confirmation teacher, and Bud was my high school Sunday school teacher, and later our adult Sunday school teacher.

Bud’s Passion for coaching, teaching, and his family, was matched only by his passion for spreading the good news of the Saving grace and power of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ!  Please take a moment to remember Bud and say a prayer for his family.


In fondest memory,
John Hollenbach
Mayor of Perkasie
