Butch was "a piece of work". That is a phrase he often used when he coached at Hofstra in the early 1960s when I knew him. He was a great coach, a fabulous character and a charismatic figure.
Butch lit up a room, was a wonderful story teller and is one of the most memorable people I have ever had the privilege to be around. He was the real Flying Dutchman.
