So many memories involving Butch, too many to pick just one right now. I will cherish those memories forever! You were a good man for my sister, a great dad-figure for Tasha, a great dad for Keeth and you loved with your whole heart. I am proud to have called you my brother-in-law! You were a great soul and will be greatly missed by me and many MANY others. Rejoice with those gone before you, we love them ALL. Remember you always, Butch, glad to have had you to call a friend. Miss you buddy, gone TOO soon for sure.. :(

I first met Butch when he was about 11 or 12 years old. He would always bring a smile out of everyone he saw. God bless and I hope to see him again in heaven.

Butch... where do I begin? I loved him as a father. One of my favorite memories was him taking me to school everyday in kindergarten. We would blast Pink Floyd's Brick in the Wall eachc morning and sing it at the top of our lungs after my dad passed in 91 and my uncle Tom in 2000, Burc made sure I never wanted for anything and always looked out for me. I apiece of my heart went to heaven with him. Hope he is up there enjoying a game with the Hibberd and more! Much love to Laura, Tasha, and Keeth.
