The world suffered loss; we suffered a loss when Butch (Pops) decided to rest in the arms of his loving wife and the Lord. In the world of Labor, Pops was a man among men, he stood out in a crowd. His passion for his UNION was and is no secret. He taught me and others that we must take care of each other. He was a guiding light to those who wanted to understand how to be a wonderful human being. Pops, your “motion to adjourn” has been received by the highest power. Amen
My teacher, my leader, my friend.
You will be missed. I will miss our phone calls and meetings in Virginia. I pray you will rest in peace Cousin.
