Butch was born in Loup City, Nebraska on December 13, 1950. He lived on the family farm outside of Ashton, Nebraska until he graduated from Loup City High School in 1969. He moved to Denver, Colorado to attend business school and met Penny shortly after. They were married in June of 1970 and moved to Omaha where they raised their five children. In 1971, Butch was drafted into the U.S. Army for the Vietnam War and served out his time in the Army in Germany from 1971 to 1973. After a short stint at Western Electric, he began working at Deluxe Check Printing Corporation in 1975.  After a long and distinguished career at Deluxe, he retired in 2012 after 36 years. During his time at Deluxe he moved to Des Moines, Iowa in 1993 and then, in 1996, Deluxe transferred him to Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was temporarily transferred to Kansas City, Missouri in 2009 until his retirement in 2012.

During the last five years he enjoyed retirement in Colorado Springs with Penny, taking numerous trips to Arizona, Central America, and Omaha to visit family and friends.  In his free time, he enjoyed golfing, fishing, cooking food, hanging out with family and friends, and taking care of his lawn.
