Charles "Bud" Cratty, Sr.

February 13, 1942 ~ May 25, 2022 (age 80)


   Charles (Bud) Cratty, Sr. of Baltimore passed peacefully at home, surrounded by his family. Loving husband to Beverly Cratty, father of Kimberly Beam (Daniel), Lorri Stone, John Chinault, Charles Cratty, Jr. (Karen), Teresa Ameden (Scot), Michele Emerick (Jon); loving “Duck” to 10 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Loving Brother, Uncle and friend to many.

   Bud was raised in a large, loving, Catholic family and he proudly raised his six children in the Church. He loved being a husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather. His greatest joy was his family, but he also loved golf and being on the water. He was sensitive, loving, kind, wise, and fair. Everyone was a better person for knowing him, and our world is a less kind place without him.
