He was a retiree of Ato-Chem and shortly after his retirement he began volunteering at Baptist Health where he completed the Chaplains Training Program, serving as a chaplain until his illness in early 2014. Butch was best remembered as "Santa Butch," donating his spare time around Christmas to churches, schools, nursing homes and families, portraying Santa Claus and spreading the cheer of Christmas and the message of the Gospel.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Sarah; son, Brian and wife (Melissa); daughter-in-law, Joyce; and three grandchildren, Megan, Michael, and Katelyn; as well as several nieces and nephews.
