So sorry to hear of Butch’s passing. I have many fond memories of him through multiple years of working together on construction projects, softball, pool and most of all the Kentucky golf trips. He will be sadly missed. God bless his entire family.

I didn't know what to think, the first time I heard that gravely voice. Soon, though, I discovered the wonderful man he was. And for many years now I have been privileged to call Butch, not only a Lodge Brother, but a friend.

I, too, pray that God grants an extra touch of comfort and strength to Barb and all the family, to guide them through the rough days ahead. Butch will be sorely missed.

Until we meet again, my friend.

My dad Larry Priebe and Butch were close friends for many years. I worked for Butch for a couple of summers when I was in school. I have a lot of fond memories of those days. May God Bless you Butch and help your family through this time.
