Butch was my brother in law for many years. I loved playing cards with him and he taught me to play Pinochle although I don't think I ever could beat him.. He was always a winner.. If he went hunting, he got the most ducks, fishing, the most fish, playing cards, he would be the winner etc. Same with Bowling and everything else he ever tried. I enjoyed many card games, camping trips etc, over the years that he was my brother in law. I send out sympathy to his family who will miss his presence so much.
