Richard met his loving wife Dorothy (my boo) and was married on July 28, 1964. To that union one child was born Audrea.
Butch had an infectious personality. He would help anyone in need and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. His many passions included working on cars, fishing, cooking, welding was his favorite, repairing anything you brought to him, and he would weld it back together or tell you I done all I can for you, and most of all riding his motorcycle known as Clyde.
