Butch was a dedicated employee at Amazon. He was a very upbeat, happy, and positive person in all situations, and was often saying “AWESOME”, “I got this”, “Praise Jah”, and always “I love you”. In his spare time, he loved to fish, garden, and work on projects around his home/little farm. Butch’s favorite thing to do was being around his family and friends just hanging out and laughing, and helping whenever he could, especially when it came to his loving parents.
