CHUCK BUTCHER

Uncle Babe will be missed and I will always have a place in my heart. He always treated me like one of the family and made me feel like a member of the Saugstad family. I always hated haircuts and still do but going over to uncle Babes basement was made less painful he always made me feel good because he always did his best getting my funky curly hair to look its best. I still see in my mind his smile and my memores of him at the pool, in the garden at family functions will be with me forever. My deepest sypathy especially to Maynard, Donna, Kathy, Debby, Dan and Tiny I share pain

Love Chuck butcher

On behalf of the USS McKean Reunion Assoc and Marv’s many shipmates I express my deepest sorrow to you, Donna and your family, for your loss. You and Marv were regulars at our reunions and they will not be the same without both of you. We will recognize all of our fallen shipmates in Portland this year, but Marv will have a special
place in our hearts at this reunion.

In the words of the 19th century Scottish poet, Thomas Campbell: “To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
