I loved Butch like a father. He was a sweet sweet soul and loads of fun to be around. I envied the friendship that he and Sherry has with my mom and dad. You just don’t find those kinds of friends anymore. I pray for peace, strength and comfort for the family. Butch will be sorely missed. Rest In Peace dear man!
