I will always have fond memories of his many adventures and great storytelling. It was always a pleasure getting together when he came to town. We're so grateful to have known him. May he rest in peace. Joyce & Woody from Philly

Butch had a laugh that would light up the block. I will miss our heartfelt conversations where we laughed till we cried. I was always, always glad to see you...and look forward to seeing you again. I pray your wife, Lorraine and family will be comforted by Gods love and spirit.

You have my deepest sympathy, may God continue to keep and comfort you during this time.

Sending our love and prayers to you at this very difficult time.

To Mrs. Kerr, Michelle and Tracy. May God continue to watch over and keep your family through these times. I dont have to tell you of what type of husband and father he was, you already know. Whenever I would see Butch he always had a smile on his face and before he left everyone would be smiling and laughing too. We the Smith and Wilson families will surely miss him.

Love Arneita and Russell Wilson and Family

Michelle, our deepest sympathies and prayers to you and your family during your time of sorry.

Great Father...Great Man
