Butch, also known as PawPaw, had 12 grandchildren: TJ, Chesney, Sierra, Tucker, Wesley, Carly, Trent, Savannah, Emma, Abbey, Colton and Dalton. He loved his grandchildren immensely and was always there for them when they needed anything.
Butch was a hard worker, employed by Duke Power for 43 years. He was an incredible husband, father, and grandfather who spent his life providing for others, but God and family came first.
