Butch Muddiman, passed away on June 17, 2021 at the age of 72. Everyone that knew him was forever touched by his friendliness and his ability to make you laugh and feel loved. He was a great friend and will be missed by many.
Butch was born on January 28, 1949 as Byron H. Muddiman Jr. and his parents were Byron H. and Irene (nee Billinghurst) Muddiman. He grew up with his future wife Margaret Rischmann and they married on May 16, 1968. Butch and Maggie created a home with love of faith and family. They were blessed with three daughters: Amy, Jennifer and Heather. Butch lost all of his hair by raising three girls and he also lost his wallet, with each of them wrapped around his little fingers. He led by example of always joking, telling stories and definitely how to dance. He preferred them to not follow his example of dancing on tables. He knew how to have a good time but during every moment of every day he also had his faith with him. He was a prayerful person and always put God first. He was active in the Stephen Ministry, Knights of Columbus, St. Paul Street Evangelist, CHRP, and a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. He was a lector, server, greeter and a friendly face to all who attended and worked at St. John's. You could always hear Butch singing at church because he also loved music. Butch was a hard worker, working as a meat cutter... Butch the Butcher, he always had fun with his co-workers at R&R Meats, Kahn's and Langdon's Meats. When not working Butch enjoyed being outdoors, teaching his daughters and grandchildren how to shoot guns, fishing or horseback riding. Earlier in life, Butch joined the Cowboy mounted shooting group where they would camp and enjoy time together. He enjoyed the many friendships he created whether it was at church, horseback riding, or in his active ministries he was involved in he always let his faith shine through. In more recent years he took up woodcarving. He made a beautiful Celtic Cross for Amy and he was working on perfecting his whittling. Butch was also a Bourbon, Beer, Gun & Knife enthusiast.
