So sorry to hear about Butch. I saw him at Lowes the day he died and was shocked to see his obit in the paper. Butch was such a nice person and hard worker. I will miss not seeing him again.

My husband, Scott Ironside and I are so sorry to hear of your family's loss. Uncle Butch always was willing to help me when I lived there, mostly with his confident smile and positive words. He was ever the Coach, a hard-worker, a good husband, and father. Butch took duty, especially to his family, seriously. I had the privilege of meeting with him and his deeply-loved wife, last summer at just such an affair. He will be missed!
