He was a member of Mt Calvary Baptist Church in Christiansburg, VA until he was no longer able to attend services.

Butch was a very loving and caring person. He never met a stranger and if you were sick he was always ready to lift you up in prayer. He was known for his tall tales. When uncle Donnie was in visiting, they had to go yeehawing through the neighborhood. It was the small things that brought so much joy to his life that most would not understand.

Thank you to New River Valley Hospice Services for your loving care.

The family will have visitation at McCoy Funeral Home in Blacksburg, VA on July 18, 2021 from 4-6 pm. Funeral services will be held at Mt Calvary Baptist on July 19, 2021 at 11 am with Rev. Frankie Graham and Rev. Howie McKinney officiating. Interment will follow at Den Hill Cemetery. The family is asking you to wear a mask during services.
