"On this 90th anniversary of Butch's birth his absence continues to be difficult to deal with. I often think of him and the manner in which he made others around him comfortable with his often quite gracious  personality

My Brother, Masonry means more
Than just to wear a pin,
Or carrying a dues receipt
So the Lodge will let you in.

You wear an emblem on your coat,
And on your hand a ring.
But, if you're not sincere at heart,
This doesn't mean a thing.

It's just an outward sign to show
The world that you belong
To this Fraternal Brotherhood
That teaches right from wrong.

What really counts lies buried deep
Within the human breast;
Masonic teaching brings it out
And puts it to the test.

If you can do outside the Lodge
The things you learn within,
Be just and upright to yourself
And to your fellow men;

Console a brother when he's sick,
Or help him when in need.
Without a thought of a reward
For any act or deed;

Conduct yourself in such a way
The world without can see
None but the best can meet the test
Laid down by Masonry;

Respect and live up to your trust
And do the best you can;
Then you can tell the world you are
A Mason and a Man!     "

"Bro. Edinboro was known as the Chaplain "Man of the Cloth" who could be seen every month at the monthly meeting in the same spot sitting at the back bench. He would open the meeting in prayer with his distinguished voice which we will all miss. Bro. Edinboro will always be remembered for his great values and commitment to the Association for so many years. You have completed the tasks and you served your purpose . May the external light forever shine on you. R.I.P."

"I will always remember you Butch for your candor and dry humor as you rode home with me after each meeting. You often reminded me of the good old days in Wortmanville (Packu Dam). Your insight was and still is quite an inspiration for me.
I will truly miss you.
Bro. A.. Britton."
