Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

I was sorry to read in the Richmond paper of Judge Butzner's death. My parents spoke fondly of him often during their lives. My parents were William Chesley Decker and Ruby Dillard both of Fredericksburg and then of Richmond after their marriage.

I had the extreme pleasure of meeting and knowing Judge Butzner while I worked at the 4th Circuit. He
was a brilliant jurist and one of the most remarkable gentleman I have ever known.

John will be missed by all who knew him. A great man who i will always miss in my heart. I love you John.
