Rest in peace. I had the pleasure of meeting him a number of times at the tennis court. Colorful, interesting, passionate and a cool guy.

Butch was extremely intelligent, humorous and kind, a terrific friend. Last night a group of us visited some of his favoite bars in Easton, had a few Miller Lites and enjoyed sharing some of our many good times with "Coach". He will be missed.
