He was born on September 6, 1930 in Annapolis, MD, son of the late Julia Silverman Sobel and the late Rear Admiral USN Herbert R. Sobel.

Bud was an avid line dancer, and member of the Elks Lodge #242.

Besides his parents, Bud was preceded in death by his wife of 23 years, Nancy L. Schreiner Sobel and his sister, Ann L. Sobel.
