    I have many fond memories, as a boy growing up, of playing baseball on the field’s at Sycamore and Upper Pigeon.
    Mr. Butler, “Bud” as he was called, was one of the coaches. I am truly thankful that he and all the other men in the community gave of themselves so that a bunch of us could play that game that I thought was so wonderful back then.
    Sincere condolences to his family.
