Loren (Butch) Douglas Halvorson

February 19, 1945 - January 17, 2019

Loren (Butch) Douglas Halvorson Butch was born in Devil's Lake, ND and grew up in Hamar, ND. He graduated from Tolna High School in Tolna, ND in 1963. After high school, he joined the Air Force and was stationed at Walker Air Force Base in Roswell, NM until the base closed in 1967. After the military, he moved to Phoenix, and became a bartender at BestaWan Pizza Parlor where he met Brenda, his wife of 51 years. He worked as a salesman for Capel-Klang, which eventually became Central Garden Supply, for 38 years. He was very active in Little League, serving as the equipment manager for the league and assistant coach for his son's teams. He loved to ride motorcycles, swim in the backyard pool, and watch his daughter play softball and soccer. Most of all, he loved to go up to his property in the White Mountains of Pinedale, AZ and enjoy the cooler weather in the summertime, as well as all of the family get-togethers. He is survived by his wife Brenda, son Chad (Dena), daughter Stacy (Eric), grandchildren Zachary, Matthew, and Ethan, sister Elaine (Bob), brothers Myron (Linda), Warren (Jerry), and Gary (Ann). He was a very sweet and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. He will be greatly missed.

The mountain will be different now but we will think of Butch every time we look out at the meadow.

Prayers for family and friends as Butch was loved by many.
