I have sat down many times this week to try to capture Butch's spirit, his wry humor, his slow eye-blink followed by the head turn that conveyed his incredulity at some story or opinion I was sharing. Each time I tried to put pen to paper, I failed. I think that means he was un-know-able, indescribable, inscrutable. I loved him and I know he loved me. He would not have used the nickname Tubby for anyone he didn't love!

I was lucky to call him brother-in-law.

Ev actual got me interested in playing golf, practicing on our lunch breaks some times at the BWI golf range. Ev’s knowledge in the work force was so beneficial to us all. Rest In Peace!
