His brother, Seymour, is inconsolable.

RIP Funny named man, have many fond memories watching you play when I was growing up.

Fun fact: There were never any Butz Fumbles

Oh geeze, I knew Dave when he was in high school. He was an awesome all-state tackle at Maine South HS.

Sadly, the first thing I think of is his uncle's infamous quote (at the time, the Secretary of Agriculture under Pres. Nixon).

this version has been sanitized.  He supposedly used the N word.

72? Was adding the word retired to the headline really necessary?

Sad.  I met him many times as a kid through a family friend.

Many years later that same friend called and asked if she could make dinner for Mrs.FNG, her, myself, and Dave that night.  Apparently his daughter was pursuing the same line of work as my wife, and he had some questions.

So my car battery had been giving me trouble, and I had to get a jump to get home.  My friend and Dave were waiting for me on the porch, I apologized and explained about my battery.

So while my friend is making dinner, he asks me if he wants me to change my car battery.  I laugh and say "I'll deal with it tomorrow" and he's all like "We've got time while Eileen is making dinner, seriously."

So my friend drives my wife to Autozone, they return with the battery, and sure enough, Dave Butz is changing my car battery.  He even used baking soda/etc to get rid of the acid and crap that had built up.

After that we had a great dinner and a fun night, and he never once asked my wife about her business or any questions that were the reason he was there in the first place.

Oh, and he told me he hated playing football once he became a pro; he was just doing it for the money.

RIP, Hot Butz #65  (still have some of those patches around)
