Death: Sep. 21, 1972
Buena Park
Orange County

Cate was a Detective with the Buena Park Police Department who was gunned down while searching for a registered sex offender named Herman Clouston. Clouston was later arrested. Cate left a wife and five children.
On February 17 1981, the Buena Park City Council passed a resolution for a memorial tree to be planted in the honor of Detective “Bud” Cate at the Buena Park library. On April 25 1981, there was a dedication ceremony at the library (7150 La Palma) in which a lemon-scented Eucalyptus tree was planted and accompanied by a bronze plaque in memory of Detective Cate. The tree and plaque are along the south side of the sidewalk leading to the main entrance of the Library.



On November 16 1981, the Buena Park City Council passed a resolution naming a private street “Cate Drive” in honor of the slain police officer. Cate Drive is located on Knott Avenue just north of Firestone Boulevard.

On January 30, 1982 Clouston was released from State Prison after serving nine years.
