Butch, I'm going to miss your smile and laugh when you made your jokes, especially when they were about the Coast Guard. I'm also going to miss talking about guns and hearing your war stories in which I had no problem listening to for hours. You are simply going to be missed!!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I will miss his sweet face...my #3 Dad. It won't be the same without him here. He taught me how to clean my first deer and turkey. So many great memories and times together. We will see him in our dreams, keep him in our hearts and hope he guides us when we take aim during hunting season. Loved him dearly, Crissy

RIP Butch Butch was a sweet man and I will never forget my few weekends with him,Dana and Barry. He would drive us around the ranch showing me all his land and what he wanted to do much land he had. Took Dana and I to town for Lunch. Visited his friends. Most of all was sitting on the back porch listening to his stories. He had awesome stories. Love you Butch you will be missed Brenda Lea
