Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I'm very sorry to hear of Butch's passing. He was a vital member of the Murray team for many years, preparing our new vehicles as we received them from the factory. Butch was always a positive and fun person to be around. He loved to tell a joke and get a laugh. Butch would always brighten your day. - Posted by: Dan Murray (Working) on: Nov 30, 2021

  • We always enjoyed it when Butch came to the Accounting Department at Murray Chevrolet to say hi. He carried such a positive attitude and was always smiling. It made me smile when he called all the Accounting ladies "buds" or "buddy". It was a true pleasure to work with him. - Posted by: Corinne Campbell (Co-worker from Murray Chevrolet) on: Nov 30, 2021

  • I knew Butch through my husband, Mike. We had many good times at the farm in Ashern. I just want to send my sincerest condolences to the family. - Posted by: Laura Lester (Acquaintance ) on: Nov 29, 2021

  • I was in Butch's circle of high school friends. He was my Sadie Hawkin's date one year - probably 1969. I made him wear a funny corsage that hung down to his knees and we took the bus downtown with other friends (Ray & Tannis). We lost touch as school friends often do, but I remember Butch as a good sport and always fun to be around. I think of him every time I drive by Brandon Avenue. My sympathies to Butch's family - I'm sure he will be missed very much!
