I accepted the Philanthropy award on behalf of Sarasota Private Trust Company at Goodwill Manasota’s 2023 Community Ambassador of the Year Awards event.
Last Saturday Butch and his wonderful partner, Pam Clark, watched the Ohio State game together and had dinner. Some 12 hours later, Butch died in Pam’s arms. I don’t believe he could have ever scripted a better ending for his great life. I didn’t get to say goodbye, but I spoke with him by phone last Friday and texted him “Go Bucks” during Saturday’s game.
