I will remember Uncle Jack very fondly and with a smile.

My deepest sympathy to Jackie and her family.

I fondly remeber Jack from the time he & Faye were dating prior to their Marriage.The Butterbaugh family lived on the Southeast corner of intersection of South & Bever street. A good number of WHS students, myself included, Class of 58, lived on that 1st block of South Street East of intersection with Bever. Butterbaughs were among the very first in our neigborhood to have TV, & some of us would always go down to therr house on Saturday night to watch Sid Caesar, Imogene Coca, & Carl Reiner perform on the Show of Shows. Wonderful time, wonderful folks including Jack & Faye.
