Butchie is one of those grandfathers that are truly rare to come by, and although I am just an honorary part of the Witte/Woehnker family, I love him and Patty and he will be so deeply missed. Anyone who has shared a laugh, a warm conversation, or even an afternoon cocktail with Butchie knows how much of a gentleman and a truly loving man he was.
My heart goes out Patty and his family....Today and always, may fond memories bring peace, support and strength. I love you all.
-Jess, Brad & the rest of the Beck family
