He loved playing cards, especially pinochle and was an avid fisherman. He loved thin crust pizza with extra crispy crust, ½ cheese and ½ Italian sausage, with lots of salt. He also loved spending time with his late dog “Trouble”.

Butch was the adoring husband of 40 years to Carol (nee Kaczmarek); loving father of Kelly (Patrick) Waldrop and Ashley; dear brother of Joseph Fanchi and Bernard Fanchi; beloved uncle and dear friend to many he will be missed by all those whose lives he touched including his dogs “Lissa” and “Penny”.
