A native of Pennsylvania, he had resided in Henderson County for the past 34 years. He was a son of the late Holden Taylor Paulhamus II and Sara Miller Paulhamus.

Bud proudly served in the Pennsylvania National Guard and was a longtime employee of Lewis Williams Hardware. He was a member of Mud Creek Baptist Church and sang in many gospel and barbershop quartets over the years, as he had a deep love for singing. He always enjoyed watching his beloved Braves during baseball season and the Carolina Tar Heels during basketball season. He loved his family greatly and cherished spending time with them.

He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Eileen Paulhamus; son, Rob Paulhamus; daughter, Vikki Watson and her husband, Chuck; grandchildren, Susannah Lee Paulhamus and John Michael Paulhamus; sisters, Polly Holmes, Sally Doran and Betty Nelson; brother, Joe Paulhamus and several nieces and nephews.
