So sorry to hear about the passing of another one of the Good Guys. Butch was a longtime friend of my Father's, and became a friend of mine. Butch always had a smile and a handshake for us whenever we seen him, even when he was working. He will be greatly missed by many around racing. My sincere condolences to the Book Family at this difficult time. Alan Sagi

I recall Butch back when he worked on my great uncle Bob's #17. Butch's dad operated the Gulf station on the corner of Mary St. & Harrisburg Pike in Lancaster back in the 60's & 70's where Butch worked. A lot of memories of Butch. I hope you and Bob are wrenching that #17 in the sky!

I send thoughts and prayers out to Book family. I regret that working till 6am this morning with the flu took too much out of me, and I don't want to spread this bug. I had planned to attend his service to say goodbye.

Butch always had words of encouragement for my dad and I as he knew we were no-buck and raced for the love of the sport, much the same as his love of racing.
When we won our first race at The Grove in '88, I told Butch I wanted to buy the checker flag. He told me he would see that I get it at the end of the season. A man of his word, one evening he handed me the folded flag and absolutely refused to take a dime. In fact he apologized for not cleaning it first. The one memento I have that means the most to me is that dirty flag, I just wish I would have had Butch sign it.

RIP my friend
