Butch also loved sports, especially basketball. One of Butch‘s fondest memories was playing in the final game of the Wisconsin High School State Basketball Championship in 1961. There were no classes at that time and the small town in northern Wisconsin met a large Milwaukee Lincoln team and lost in overtime by two points. Their team is still talked about around Rice Lake.
He is survived by his sister, Sandra Anderson, his wife Joan, three sons Jeff (Shelly), Jason (Kristen), Joel (Holly) and seven grandchildren that he was extremely proud of.
Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held 2:00 P.M. Saturday May 7 at the Big Timber Lutheran Church with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Butch's name may be made to the Melville Lutheran Church or a charity of one's choice.
