  5. Butch was a childhood friend and neighbor who I was blessed to have spent an afternoon with on a trip back home. We spent hours catching up and remembering some of our childhood antics. His laughter was infectious during that time and it was a joy to spend time looking back with him. He was a wonderful man, a friend and will be greatly missed. My heartfelt condolences to his sister Jerry and the rest of his family. Rest in peace Butchie. You were one of a kind!
