Butchie White was a 34-year-old father of 3 kids; Ashley, Little
Louie, and Le Ann. He loved to work (ALOT) and he enjoyed the
outdoors. He liked to play pool, softball, baseball and darts.
He loved listening to his
favorite groups; his favorite bands were The Grateful Dead and John Cougar Mellancamp. He
worked for years putting in swimming pools all over the country, a job
he truly loved.
He was allegedly murdered by the mother of his three children on April 4, 2000
in their home, by one single stab wound to the chest. She is out
on bail and has custody of the kids. How and why is a question we
all have. My family
and I do not know the truth as to what happened because he is now dead
and can't speak for himself and we were not there.
He finally found the home of his dreams that he had always
planned to buy for his family and it is a shame that he was killed in
his dream home.
Butchie's favorite color was blue and you could always find my
brother under the hood of his car, and all of his friends' cars!
He liked to tinker with them since he was a little boy. He
also loved animals - always a pet or two in the house.
He would spend his free time with the kids playing outdoors,
fishing, playing in the stream or just goofing off.
My brother was a very happy-go-lucky kind of guy liked by all who
have ever met him.
I am his baby sister and I am trying my hardest to keep his memory
alive, and I pray to God every day that I will once again see his
children, and let them know that I am here for them and how much their
Daddy's family loves them.
My mom moved from New Jersey to Pennsylvania to be close to my
brother and his kids. She spent his last days with him. He
was so proud of what he was trying to do for his family and he wanted
his side of the family to come to Pennsylvania to see his new
home. My family will never be able to see his dreams come true,
nor will his children.
Butchie, your warm smile
and your kindness have touched so many people on this earth. You
are missed and loved by all.
God bless us all.
