I worked with Butch in the Cairo Store 2013 to 2016 He was the BEST manager they had, I knew he would deal with problems in Front End, he wouldn't sweep them under a rug. He always took care of any problems I brought to him. I will miss him dearly I loved sitting in his office and just chatting sometimes. God has a small guy with a giant heart may he rest in peace. I pray for comfort for his family

So very sorry to hear of Butch's passing. Duane always said he had more heart for the game than most of his players. Saying prayers for Butch tonight.

I still can't believe you are gone. It just doesn't seem real. I already miss your phone calls and messages. I miss you terribly my brother. I love you always and forever. Rest in Peace. Please watch over us while we navigate this world without you.
