Butch was my go-to guy with most things mechanical. He usually had an answer wether auto, plumbing, etc. With his able assistant
Denny they bailed me out many times. Butch was also a master of
vital statistics, he knew ages and dates better than anyone I know.
Erva and I will miss him dearly.

I love you and will miss you so much Uncle Butch. One of my favorite memories is playing euchre and you would steal my deal. You would just smile at me when I called you out for stealing. Another is letting me drive Uncle Denny’s chevelle before he sold it, because you knew how much I liked it.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Cathy and the entire family. Butch was my father's cousin and I remember many stories of their childhood visits to the family farm. May Butch R.I.P. and the family find comfort in remembering his life.
