Butch was a quiet, kind man with a terrific off-beat sense of humor. He enjoyed spending time in his garden, walking, watching sports, mushroom hunting, making salsa, and taking his Sunday rides. Butch also created special memories baking Christmas cookies with his daughters. Most importantly, Butch enjoyed spending time with his family and good friends.
