Butch was an avid volunteer for the Little League Baseball and Softball Organization.

His Greatest triumph is the “Butch Faber Field” in Brighton, WI where the future generations will come to play their best games. Butch cherished his friendships made through his devotion with the Little League program from parents to players. For the past 32 years everyone looked for Butch at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA knowing he was the one with all the pins! Butch had a deep passion for collecting but more so trading the pins and never seemed to run short.
Butch also enjoyed playing Euchre with his family and friends, spoiling his daughter, talking trucking adventures with his grandson Tyler, fishing trips to MN while mastering the fish fry, and finishing his days with phone conversations to “Big Daddy”.
Survived by his children Michelle and James. Grandfather to Tyler and Ethan. Brother to Gary (Barb), Colleen (Roger) and Michael (Terry) and many Cousins, Nephews and Nieces. Great Grand dog Bruno
