Krohn Family: So sorry for your loss. Butch was truly a good man. My interaction goes back to Lenker Manor Pool days - early/mid 1980's. I have many memories of Butch and others from that period. Many a time Butch would 'volunteer' time and fix broken items at the Pool - spent many hours talking/joking and reflecting. Seems Like Good People Leave Us Way Too Soon. He will be missed, I am sure.

Rob, so very sorry for your loss. You certainly know your Dad was "special". Butch was one of our great swim parents and no one roasted a pig better. I personally was blessed to have such a friend. Our deepest sympathy to you.
