Butch worked as a Construction Superintendent at Kettler Brothers for 45 years involved in building the entire project of Montgomery Village, MD.

 After retirement from Kettler Brothers Butch got bored and returned  to work, working for his son-in-law at Ben Lewis Plumbing for the last 15 years where he made more friends who loved working with him till his passing.

Butch had a wide range of hobbies and interests that brought him immense joy throughout his life.   The most being his love for building and restoring Classic and Street Rod Cars - a passion that led him on many cross country travels to attend car shows.  Additionally during his younger years, Wednesday nights were reserved for his bowling league at Terrace Lanes.  He also played softball.  These hobbies brought him such joy with cherished friends with whom he shared unforgettable memories.  In his later years he enjoyed auctions, watching Lukes sporting events and spending time with family.
