Butch and my brother Bill Kelly were friends, and one day my brother comes home and tells me that Butch had two younger sisters at his home, and the next day my brother took me up on our pony to meet Con & Deb that was 63 years ago and we remained friends with each other as well as to each others family. Butch was a good friends, and like a older brother to me, one time my dad was up on the roof of our old house and he couldn't get down, so my Mom called everybody she could think of, then Butch came down and got my Dad off the roof safely. Butch and Bill would would always be watching us. Butch was sometimes nicer then my own brother.. Butch had a heart of gold.. Always a GOOD Friend. R.I.P Butch.. From the Linda Kelly/Repik family
