On August 29, 1965, Butch married the former Rita Thornton in Quincy, Ohio, and she survives along with their three daughters, Dawn (Brad) Worch of Columbus, Ohio, Dee Dee (Dale) Kret of Columbus, and Darcy (Scott) Marlow of Huntsville, Ohio; five grandchildren, Britney Worch, Evan Kret, Sydney Kret, Hannah Marlow, and Bradley Worch; a sister, Virginia (Henry) Wydra of Sisters, Oregon; an aunt, Mary Ruth Ball; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
