Butch grew up in the South Valley where he made many friends and many memories. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a contagious laugh. His funny stories had an everlasting impression, they were ones you couldn’t forget. He had a love for art and expressed it in his many tattoos that told the story of his life. He loved watching movies, documentaries, and listening to music. Van Halen was his favorite band. Amongst all hobbies, his most enjoyable was eating. He loved spending time with his family. One of his greatest joys in life was his granddaughter. He helped take care of her with great pride. He loved her immensely. Johnnylee was his pride and joy. Butch made an everlasting impression on each individual he met, especially with his beautiful blues eyes and overwhelming good looks. We give thanks to our Heavenly Father for his life and for the opportunity to have shared it. He will be greatly missed.
