Condolences

Dear Riccardi & Ursone Family,

Please accept our Deepest Sympathy in the Loss of a Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle, Brother in Law and Friend,

We all Loved and Respected Butch very much and we all became very close to Butch through our working together on our numerous Projects at UTCRAS over the years. Butch was always at work early in the morninig supporting everything and everyone in the planned daliy scheduled maintenance planned. Butch was always there to offer advise and his expertise on any project at any time. He did not come in everyday, but the days that he did come in were filled with accomplishment and motivation generated by him to all of us. He was very proud of his accomplishments in life, his beautiful wife, his family, his home and his automobiles. Butch's favorite time of the day was lunch which was prepared by his beautiful wife Toni and usually was made up of leftovers from the previous night's dinner. We were all very envious of his lunches and the aromia filling the lunch room after he warmed up the meals. Butch was a hard worker and always set an example for younger less experienced employees he had occasion to mentor & work with while at UTCRAS. We will all miss him and we will all Pray for him while Thanking God that his pain & suffering from Mesothelioma has ended.....and he is finally at Peace. Butch called me the Thursday before he passed away to tell me Goodbye.... and I was so taken with his his words to me that I could only respond "Good Bye and God Bless You Butch" !!!  Rest In Peace Butch !!!

Steve Persson and Family
