Bud was born October 26, 1936 in Wheaton to Herbert and Myrtle (Drinkwitz) Rinke. He proudly served his country in the United States Army until his honorable discharge. Bud married Barbara, the love of his life, Rudolph on June 18, 1961 in Henning, MN. The couple moved to Sauk Rapids in 1966, and were active in the community. In 1967, Bud established his law practice of Rinke Noonan and served many clients in central Minnesota and beyond. He retired in 1991 and the couple moved to Nisswa and wintered in Mesa, AZ. Bud was active on many boards throughout the state of Minnesota: MN State University Board, Private College Board, MN Higher Education Coordinating Board, Board of Regents Concordia University - St. Paul, Board of Directors of MN North District LCMS, and Treasurer of District LCMS. He was a founding member of United Way in St. Cloud; active with the Lions Club, volunteered with the Sauk Rapids Fire Department, and served the AZ Department of Corrections as a volunteer chaplain. Bud was a member of Living Savior Lutheran Church in Lake Shore, MN and past member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Sauk Rapids. He was a faithful and involved member of his churches. Bud greatly enjoyed his grandkids and their many activities, as well as playing bridge and other card games, fishing, traveling, tennis, hiking and biking. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
