Butch and I worked together at Station 9.
During that time the services were separated!
I was in the EMS Division and he was Fire Division!
All though we didn’t handle too many calls together, we developed a strong bond of camaraderie together during our down time!
He always had a genuine interest in his fire department family!
My prayers Go out to the family and their friends. I pray for God’s Comfort and Peace during your time of grief!
Much Love!
