  • I am so sorry for your loss. Butch was a bright spot in the class or 83 during high school. We all loved him in the drama club. He did grrat imitations with voices of any character Mrs.Hoffman would give us for impromptu. He was kind to everyone.

    He could make us laugh with comedies and cry with some of the more serious plays like, “The Other Side” which caused us go deeper and think about things like war and loss.
    I’m so glad he got to serve in the US military. I imagine you have always been so proud of him and his smile, his hugs and genuineness will never be forgotten!

  • So sorry for your loss Gidget. Butch was a really good guy. Always enjoyed talking to him when we ran into each other. Take care.

  • I have great memories of spending time with Glenn. He was a friend of my son Jason and always called me Mama Kempton. He was always invited to our house for home cooked meals especially at Thanksgiving when he lived in Las Vegas.
    I always enjoyed his quick humor and his laugh. He will definitely be missed and I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Gidget & Kathy,
    So sorry for your loss of Butch. He always had such a big smile on his face and could make anyone laugh. Remember him from a long time ago when you and I hung out together Gidget. Your family will be in my prayers. Fly high Butch!

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I haven’t seen Glenn in many years.
    He played Bob Cratchit in a Christmas Carol 20 plus years ago at Galion Theatre.
    I played Mrs. Cratchit. He was so fun to perform with.
    A very fond memory.

    RIP hoss.
