Big family, as we all know, and when you're not in Whisky Rapids it's hard to stay in touch. When Butch was in Reno it was great to be around him. I always felt important around him. He was funny and positive and fun, and yes, of course he fixed my car. When my Dad died he was the only person to see my brother and I and he brought great memories and a sense of family with him that Jim and I needed. God Bless and thank you Uncle Butch! Thank you for leaving me with smile.

Will always remember what a treat it was when I got home from school and would see the Army truck on the street. That meant uncle Butch was here for a short visit. He would always light up a room. Will miss you!

My first memory of Uncle Butch was how handsome he was. He reminded me of a young Elvis. We didn't get a chance to see him often, but when we did, he was always glad to see us. I guess he's in a better place now, but I wish he could have had a few more 'good' years. RIP Uncle Butch.

Butch was someone that was always smiling and it was a great joy to see him. Everyone has one thing in life that just speaks to them. For Butch, that was cars. It's rare that we get to do what we love. And he did. He will be dearly missed.

When you went to visit Butch you would go straight to the garage (he was almost never in the house). You could ask him ANYTHING about cars. I just loved listening to him talk over a can of beer. Butch had a really interesting life with lots of great stories. I miss him.

Butch was a great guy...easy to talk to and I loved his stories. I will take a ride in my convertible and feel the wind in my hair. And I will absolutely enjoy the ride :) RIP buddy
