    My deepest condolences to Butch’s mother and family. Butch, Ned and I enjoyed many great times together floating the South anna river, dove hunting and boating. Butch also responded to countless rescue calls with the Mineral Volunteer Rescue Squad and was always dedicated to being there as a friend and serving his community and county. We all benefited from his life and time with us. It is a honor to have known him.
