Please accept my sympathy on the loss of your husband. I started working when Butch did at Mid- America printing. A terrific guy and one of the best and hardest workers I have ever known. I will include you and your family in my prayers.Ron Nagel (Bomber) capt.ron@charter.net

I remember celebrating many New Year's eve parties and their house, cleaning snapping turles. Butch helped me catch my first fish. Jill Reinhold Whelan

Butch always took his job seriously. Worked with him at Mid-America Printing and shortly at the P.D. Butch was a good man. I will keep him and his family in my thoughts and prayers.
