    Going back to school after all these years will have little meaning without running into Mr Butch on the first flat.

    A thorough cottonian and a name synonymous with Bishop Cotton School.. God bless you sir.

    shocking news,butch sir was an amazing man,

    i still remember talking to him on the first day of my school, he was our bodybuilding mentor, its so so sad to hear he’s gone. He was such a lovely man, always friendly and straightforward,

    so many memories of him from school, going back to school with you not around will never be the same.

    good bye sir, hope your in peace wherever you are.

    Its such rude shock. I had just met him at the OC week 2012, hail & hearty. Though he could not remember me instantly but way back in 1978 he always inspired me to be a strong sportsman, which he truly was. He and Late Brig. Mukund’s son were great in gym -body building and ‘Butch in other sports like tennis, cricket, football etc. was awesome. We shall all miss him.
    RIP ‘Butch’
