Butch Waller was my uncle and I love him dearly! He is and he was my idol all my life. Always wanted to be like him! And we were in a lot of ways like each other to a certain extent in the paths we took. I remember his old 57 Ford - he called it The Love Wagon. Had white seats with red hearts. I remember the time when I was a kid at my grandparents’ house on a Sunday and I found his lighter. I gave it to my mom and that got him in a lot of trouble for smoking. We still talked and laughed about it.

The last time I saw him was about 8 months ago. It was hard to see him in failing health but any visit with him was always special for me. He will always be in my heart. I truly love my Uncle Butch.

Mike Watley, nephew
Rest in peace Butch. I will miss our cherished times together.

My deepest condolences to the family of "Butch" Waller; he was my mechanic for 20+ years; he always knew exactly what was wrong with my ole jeep and it has 352,000 miles and still running. He will be missed.- He also was my brother's pony league manager when he was in school. Prayers in God's support- Connie Richardson and Bruce Woods in Chesapeake

Dear Tammy, so sorry for the loss of your dad. I remember him from Chesapeake Place. He was a sweet man and I always enjoyed talking to him. God bless and thinking of you.

Tammy I have fond memories of the years growing up. I remember when you became a Waller. I remember when your little bother came along. I remember being at your house in the creek waiting on your dad to get home so we could eat the navy bean soup your mom made. It was the first time I had had them. I can remember him telling me if I ate too many I'd be able to pass enough gas to get me back home. As a kid I didn't get it but now I laugh about that thought. I am so very sorry for you ,your boys and Butchies loss. Lots of love n hugs to you and the family.
