He is also survived by 73 nieces and nephews, two special aunts and many other relatives and friends. Butch loved to work on his pickup truck and visit his favorite place Golden Gardens in Ballard where he grew up with 9 brothers and sisters and participated in many loving family events. Butch also enjoyed all local sporting events and it was a rare day to see him without his Husky hat. He lived in an apartment complex in North Seattle and in his last years was very fond of his neighbors in the complex and the relationships he developed. His family express their deep appreciation to those neighbors who shared Butch's life and dreams. He will be deeply missed by all those who remain.
