I've known Butch since we were kids, but not seen him in over 35 years or more. He had a great voice and I remember one time at Easton Junior High School on 12th Street at that time, he and his band played in the auditorium for the students during the day and everyone loved it!! Rest in Eternal Peace. He was a good guy and always respected him.
