I have know Butch for many years going back to our high school years when we played football. He was always upbeat and when we saw each other it was a good moment because he was so gracious and treated me as a valued friend. I was sad to see his passing. I will always remember his smile and warm friendship. Best regards to his family and those who knew him well. We are all better for knowing Butch.
