Jeff and family, so sorry for you loss.

Dave Emmert, Nashville, IN

As boyhood chums who spent a lot of time together in the neighborhood and watched his Dad drive stock cars, we took all too separate paths, and only reunited at class reunions. Nonetheless, Butch's great smile, energy, and personality impacted my life in a most positive way and I am fortunate to have been his friend!

John and Joni Delacqua, Chandler, AZ

We are so saddened to have lost such a great friend. Sue, our thoughts are with you and the family. And Butch, I know we will ride together again. Until then my brother from another mother may the wind be in your face and the rumble of your ride be loud.

The Sova family, Scottsdale, AZ

Our prayers go to Sue & the family, Butch is going to be extremely missed by our family and obviously many others, I'm not sure what I'll miss most ? His smiling face, His funny jokes & stories, or his vast amount of knowledge & wisdom, Regardless I'm sure he's in a better place now!! Cruising the streets of gold on a Harley :) May God bless all who remembers him.

Kristin McKibbin, Middlebury, IN

I never saw Butch without a smile on his face. If there were problems, he didn't let it show. He was a joy to be around. I really enjoyed watching the Notre Dame games at his and Sue's home with other friends and family a couple of years ago. Those will be memories I hold onto. I will miss you. Comfort and prayers to your wife, children, family and friends.

John Varanelli, Elkhart, IN

God Bless you Butch. May the peace of our lord Be with your family. Heaven is a richer place with you.

Dallas Cooper, Scottsdale, AZ

Butch, I'll always remember the good times we had. Wether it was on the river, off-roading or just one of those times where we would go for a road-trip around Phoenix I knew it was always sure to be a good time. You're truly going to be missed by the masses that you've touched. Your unparalleled sense of humor, selflessnesses and charitable personality were all at levels that others could only aspire to. We all love you dearly. "May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand."



Neil & Susie (Durinski) Brodhead, Rio Vista, CA

Neil and I send our deepest condolences to you and your family. How proud Butch must have been with the wonderful family he had. He will be missed by all of you. We are praying for extra strength and peace in the days ahead. May Butch rest in peace. 2Corinthians 5:8 says, We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. "Absent from the body present with the Lord" May these words give you peace. "Hold my hand and I will smooth out the pathway before you".

Dave Rutter, Hudsonville, MI

BUTCH was more than just a Uncle, he was a great man. Although I didn't get to see him as much the last few years, as a teen and especially as a young adult he was always there for me when I needed someone to talk to.. He cared about all of us kids growing up ... He will be truly missed and never forgotten... My heart goes out to my Aunt Sue and especially Jeff, Tina, and Steph and their kids.. Love you all

He would help us in any way he could and was always available wether we needed cars to practice on or advice on the best way to get something done , he was always there. Thank you Butch, You will be missed.

Scott Johnson, Edwardsburg, MI

Butch was a very good guy who was never to busy to show you something new or a safer way to do a tow. I worked for him for about 7 yrs and man he taught me a lot that I still use today. He was a very good man that I've known for about 35yrs and will be truly missed. I don't think that man every slept all hours of the night he would just show up at a tow to see if everything was ok. You will be missed RIP Butch my friend.

Meri Beth Weiss (Neu), The Villages, FL

I am so sorry to hear of Butch's passing. Have known him since 6th grade and always loved to watch him laugh as he used his whole face and the sound of his laugh was his alone. My son also worked for Butch for 7 years and got to know him and is very upset with his passing. My deepest sympathy to his entire family. Butch was truly one of a kind person. May God Bless.

Butch will be greatly missed by so many people. Butch had a great sense of humor and a remarkable laugh. Dating back many years I remember Butch showing up on a wrecker call and he would always make us laugh, no matter how rotten the weather. Sharon and I want to extend our deepest condolences to Sue and the entire family. Butch was a one of a kind stand up guy. Rest in Peace my friend, you were one of a kind.
