We are so sorry for your loss. Uncle Mike (Butch to us kids) was always a favorite! I remember him taking us fishing with his buddy Gene Goddard to catch "sunnies" for supper. We proudly sported home our catch of the day (that Uncle Mike caught for us). He was always patient and kind to us kids. What an exemplary Uncle! I will miss him! Barbara (Day) Stalkfleet.
