Butch had a big family and they always came first. He would do anything for family. He liked to play Lincoln logs with his grandchildren and pretend that it was his own log cabin. He enjoyed spending time with his children, and going hunting and fishing. In his spare time, he liked to read books while having a cocktail. His memory will live on in the hearts and minds of his family forever.

Twelve grandchildren and eight great grandchildren also survive.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a grandson, Robbie, and a favorite pet, his dog, Gizmo.
