My condolences to the entire Lauderback family. What a great guy Butch was. Always a smile...a joke...quick wit. Such a great true friend of my dad's through life, work, golf, softball and umpiring. May many found memories bring you peace.

Compared to others, I only knew Butch for a very short time through the NEUA. However, I did have the honor to work with Butch while serving on the board. And it was definitely an honor to work a high school softball game with him before he retired. Butch was fair and a good leader and umpire. He had given a lot for others to learn. I GOT IT!

Hello Barbara, Being involved with the Northeast Umpires Association for a little over 25 years and being the Associations Secretary for 15 years I got to know Butch. He helped me in many ways to become a better secretary and a better umpire. When he was the assignor for Women's Fastpitch Softball for Lake Erie College he gave me my first two games. I ended working with Butch in my first 2 games. He worked the first game behind the plate. As I was getting dressed to work the second game behind the plate he asked me why I was putting on my chest protector. He told me to take it off because I don't need it. I was scared of getting hit but you learn quickly how to properly stand to protect yourself. From that point forward I never wore a chest protector while working women's college and girls high school fastpitch games. During a local high school meeting Butch told all of us that during a confrontation with a coach/manager of a team "The less said the better." From that point on I followed that saying and it worked during future confrontations. I always will remember Butch being a good human being and friend to me. He is in my prayers.
