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!
