Family Tradition

I manage the parts department at Petron L.L.C. and this morning I was talking with a vendor. He asked for my name and I told him it was Will Butterfield. He then asked if I was Ivan Butterfield’s grandson. I told him yes and he spent the next few minutes telling me what a great man my grandfather was and how much he admired him. These occurrences happen about once a week and they always bring about a sense of honor and deep respect for Grandpa. This morning I was remembering what life was like when he was around. Unfortunately, I have to rely mostly on stories I’ve been told, because he passed away when I was in the third grade. Nevertheless, every person that has shared their experiences with me have blessed me with stories of a man that was kind, caring, extremely hard working and took pride in a job well done. Grandpa passed these same values to his children and they have passed them to us. As a family and as a business we are kind, caring, hardworking and will do whatever is necessary to get the job done right. I love this family and I love that we have been blessed by a tradition that will be a blessing to others. Thank you Grandpa!

    There is no way that could have been said any better. Well done. Grandpa will always be missed but never forgotten, he has taught us to much.

    I never got the pleasure of meeting Grandpa Ivan but I have always heard the stories of what an amazing man he was. He would be so proud of all of you!

    Dad always wanted a "place". By that he meant that he wanted a little piece of this earth for his family to always want to come home to. He's sitting in a rocker on a porch in heaven just smiling to beat the band right about now as he watches his family continue to build on that dream. Not a day passes that I don't think of him and say something like "you know, my dad used to say. . . ." and it's always a positive tidbit of wisdom. He left us a pretty special legacy and we, as his children, felt an obligation to try to pass that on. I see it in all my brothers and in all our children in one form or another but the common thread is integrity. Jan (Butterfield, of course)
