Condolence & Memory Journal

Although I haven't seen Butch since I left High School, my thoughts and prayers are with his family. He was a great guy and football player whom I watched from the bench.

Sincere sympathy to the Gocker family from a former Whitewater football team mate. Another nickname for Larry was "no neck" among the football players. I have many good memories of our times together at college and later in life. I talked to him a couple of weeks ago and was glad that I was able to contact him. He will be missed by his many football friends.

We are going to miss my brother deeply. He truly did love his children and they took such good care of him. He is now with the rest of his family having a beer in heaven.
