Mapes Mourns Loss of Bud Foley
August 9, 2010

Bud Foley, who represented Mapes Industries for more than 55 years, passed away in June at the age of 90. According to a statement issued by Mapes, “Bud was a fixture in the glass and glazing trade in the Southeast for more that 65 years.”

After service in the Engineer Corp during WWII, Foley joined the E.H. Strauss Co. in Lexington, Ky., calling on glass and glazing dealers from Texas to Florida, “where he was known for his dedication to serving his customers and principals.” In some cases he had called on four generations of glass dealers in the same family. 

A private service will take place in September in Lexington, Ky.
