Our family has many years of wonderful memories, time spent at the port and Butch’s famous Super Bowl parties. They are together again, and will be greatly missed.
Jill and Matthew, your parents played a big part in our lives, we share in your grief and hope you can take comfort in all those memories.
Love you guys, Jeff and Kathy

Matthew and Jill, both your Mom and Dad were good friends of mine and their absence has been very obvious. I enjoyed all the conversations we had through the years at Port Delmarva. It was always good to see the van coming the street and knowing they were back in the Port. I will miss them greatly.
