    Butch was a fun caring man! Whenever I missed an EMO Optimist conference, he’d tell me that he was looking for me and was glad I made the next. He will certainly be missed! Prayers for Pat and the family!

    a guy who was always the same well liked easy going and dedicated. couldn’t find a better person. loved having friends and famiy over for cook outs and family fun. He displayed his military side with great pride. Feel like I am a better person for having known him and his family

    The world was a better place with Butch in it. He will be sorely missed at EMO Optimist meetings. We will miss his dry wit and easygoing demeanor. We will pray for Pat’s comfort during this difficult time.
