Butch, my mother Carol and longtime boyfriend Jo-Jo hung out with you and Nancy throughout my childhood. I remember the great memories and always had a great time! I believe we also shared a couple beers when I was of age at the Mutualista. May God Bless you. RIH Butch

My deepest condolences to my dear friend on the loss of her father and to the rest of Butch’s family. The loss of a parent leaves an emptiness that words can not fill. May his memory live in the love and wisdom that he passed on to his beautiful family and in the those treasured moments spent with him. God bless you and give you strength and comfort.

Kimberly, I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. I did not know till now. This saddened me. Your dad and I worked together at CC. He would always help me, if he saw me trying to rearrange my office or anything. He was very funny and a straight shooter. Wasn’t afraid of voicing himself. He loved you dearly. I have only good memories of him. He and your mom will be missed. God’s love to you.
