“Butch” was the best ever! There was never anything too big or too little that he would not do for another person. always willing to help and a pleasure to work with. He loved to build things and built many a lasting friendship here and by doing so built a beautiful home in heaven with all his good deeds. Butch, rest in peace with the Lord and my sincere sympathy to Elsie and the family. We will always remember you and miss you.
