We Have Lost A Fine Arrowman

Recommended Posts

Earlier this spring I had the pleasure of helping Mr. Butz replace the wooden ceiling of a local lodge building at a council camp. It was for the Ordeal weekend and we toiled away all day in cheerful service.


Dan was involved in Scouting for a quarter century and for many years served as the Scoutmaster for the "Grizzly Bear Troops" at the end of each summer. These were the boys that either didn't have a Troop going to camp or just guys who wanted a second week of camp and needed a provisional Troop.


He was a tough guy who made it through the Viet Nam war, came back Stateside, and eventually got involved with his kids and never left. Dan will be missed. We have lost a fine Arrowman.

Scout on in Heaven.... Day is done, gone the sun,

From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;

All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.


Fading light, dims the sight,

And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.

From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.


Thanks and praise, for our days,

'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, neath the sky;

As we go, this we know, God is nigh.


Sun has set, shadows come,

Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds

Always true to the promise that they made.


While the light fades from sight,

And the stars gleaming rays softly send,

To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.
