Raymond Clifford Teegarden, other than close friends and relatives, everyone knew "Butch" He was hard to miss, his deep voice, gigantic personality, friendly attitude were well known to many in his neighborhood.. It was not unusual while shopping to hear his greeting, "hey cousin," he could be heard across the street or the opposite side of the grocery store, he was not shy, his greeting came from his heart.. I will miss you Butch. You will always be my little cousin!! Shirley

Butch was a gentleman who would ensure that any female at a party or dance would dance, be she 9 or 90. He was also a loving father and was great with babies and young children!
