First knew Butch when he attended Mitchell Tech. I worked in Student Services and Butch helped me out in intramural sports. Last time I saw him was Christmas Day at I-90 restaurant. He told me than he had cancer. So sorry for your loss.

Uncle Butch will truly be missed by all. Out of all my uncles, he spent the most time with the family which made his relationship a little more unique than the others. He was more like an older brother, than an uncle. While he could be a PIA sometimes, he was always there to support the family. Family is strange, you can be mad one minute and ready to support and defend the next. Well now it is our turn to provide that support to his family. Uncle Butchy, you will truly be missed. We love you and your family. Your suffering is gone and you get to spend the rest of eternity with the others who have left before us: Opa and Oma Weitzman, Raoul, and Phillip. You will not be forgotten, Rest In Peace.
