I knew Butch and Kaye and Butches parents pretty well for a long time. We worked together a little, ate a lot of meals at El Rancho together and had a friendly friendship for years. Butch was just a nice nice fellow and honest...a guy with integrity. Claudia and I send our sympathy and will remember you in our prayers

My condolences go out to Butch's family. I always enjoyed when Butch and Tom came and helped us work cattle on the Thompson outfit at Fourway. We had a lot of fun getting the job done. He will be greatly missed.
