  • my condolences and sincere symapathies to the entire family, especially David, the 3 of us had some good laughs back in the day and a lot of fun. I feel certain he will leave a hole for awhile, RIP my old friend

  • I will never forget the drop-in-Center at St John’s. That place was the center of our early teen years where every kind of excitement and drama played out! If not for the Buttomers we wouldn’t have known that sense of adventure, but always knowing the guys had our backs. It truly was a safe haven. When I told my mother, the Buttomer boys are running it, she gave me the green light. My deep sympathies to all of you, Janet, David, Robin, all of your family.
    Yours, Dawna Andronico Donaghey
