I was saddened to hear of Butch’s passing. Butch was always around when I was at Marmet FD. With Chief McGhee. I am sorry I missed the service, but I had a lot of respect for Butch. Good listener, excellent advisor and always made time for you. I always appreciated his straight to the point. Prayers and comfort for the days that follow.
God Bless
