Butch will be greatly missed! For 4 years my wife and I served as volunteers for Sam Houston High School Band Boosters working the concessions at McNeese home games , Butch & Peggy were awesome in the fact that anything we needed they were quick to provide us whatever it was we needed! We never know where our paths in life will take us or who we meet.......Butch always greeted me as a friend and I enjoyed and looked forward to seeing him with that great big smile, brightened our day.... our prayers or with you Peggy as well as the family! Rest In Peace good friend!
