I first met Butch in 1956 when my Mom, (the widow Evelyn and Rees Senior a widower) married, and my older brother Dennis and I moved into Rees's crowded house on the hill at the top of Peach Farm Road (that was steep and winding). Butch and I walked up it many times in our years together. I was eleven in 1956 and Butch was thirteen. I followed behind him in Oxford Centralized School, and then onto Southbury High School. I was always the tag along younger brother that was allowed to hang out with Butch. He always treated me like a Brother and that opened many doors for me. I was accepted by Butch's friends and all the Miles relatives treated me like a full fledged Miles. Of Rees Senior's four step-siblings, I was the closest to Butch and always loved him for the boy, and later, the man he was.

Just last week, I mentioned to my wife that I wondered how Butch was doing. He has never been far from my thoughts. That was the day, he was leaving us all. He must have remembered me at the end, and let me know I was in his thoughts, too. Farewell Butch and know that you are loved and that you fought the good fight.

I have always thought of you as my Brother.

Condolence From Palma and Michelle Bauer Condolences Wed, 05 Apr 2017 10:17:21 EDT Condolence From Bob & Donna Kozey Condolences Mon, 03 Apr 2017 18:03:49 EDT Story shared: My Friend Butch There are many stories to share about Butch. We were friends since we were teenagers and still remain friends to this day. Throughout these years we worked together from time to time. We entered the military together and came home together.   We hunted and fished together all of our adult life, we hardly missed a year.  I will never forget those great trips to Nova Scotia and Maine.  Butch introduced me to his many friends at "The Camp" in Nova Scotia over 30 years ago, Butch and I still have these friends to this day. 

There are so many great stories to share, I will sum them all up by saying this:  Butch was one of the best friends anyone could ask for or expect to have.  He was always there for you, anytime, anywhere, anyplace.  You could always count on Butch.  He was a dependable, honest and good man.  When you asked Butch for advice you knew it came from the heart.  I think all of these traits is a pretty good honor for any man to have.

I am going to miss him, but will probably still ask for his advice.  GOD bless you Butch.
