I will miss your Kaz stories and hilarious radio traffic. We lost a great Trooper, a great friend and our area will never be the same. We will do our best to push on with you gone but make no mistake you will always be in our thoughts and memories. My deepest sympathies go out to your family and friends.

P.S.- On all future ACO complaints I will utilize W.W.P.D. (what would Paul do) in your honor.

Godspeed....

I would just like to say "Thank-You" for all you've done over the last 14 yrs...I know this was never a part of your plan, and they say "everything happens for a reason"... even when we all sit here saying why? why take an amazing man, but I do believe, that good will come in many ways from your ultimate sacrifice... As I celebrate my daughter's 12th birthday tonight, I will keep you n your family in mind and make sure my daughter knows your story and to reflect on just how precious life is and how quickly it can end... Sending healing wishes to your family, friends and coworkers... I hope they know that people who have never met you and never had the joy of knowing you care about you and appreciate all you gave... much love from my family to yours... R.I.P. Trooper Butterfield- An American hero gone too soon
