I first met Butch 10 years ago . We became good friends and always enjoyed each other's company while fishing or having a coffee . He was very strong voicing his opinions and beliefs. Very proud of his native heritage.
He was a very good friend .... always asking how I was ... always willing to help...I will miss him very much.. RIP Butch.

Dearest Sharon and family, our hearts are with you as you move through this sad time. Butch was always a great supporter of our fiddle group, we will remember his huge smile at the front of the stage encouraging us to keep playing. While his large frame might have intimidated some, once we got to know him he was a big teddy bear. His passionate support and fierce pride in his Algonquin heritage left no doubt about where his spirit was. It was always comforting to be in his presence.

I've always known Butch as John Henry Diotte I never knew his middle name was Aubert. I've known Butch for the last 12 years and in that time he was always a friend and mentor. Someone who would always go out of his was to offer to help a person out! He knew everyone's name! He enjoyed going out for coffee and sitting around shooting the breeze! He was opinionated. He could be rough. He loved his native heritage! But Butch was always a friend! RIP old friend.

My sincere condolences to Sharon, Samantha and Allison. Uncle Butch was always around our house in Oshawa when I was growing up. He took me out to the Dairy Queen for ice cream in his convertible MGB. Told me I had to lick that ice cream fast and not let it drip. If I did it just perfect he would go back and get me another one. He made me a polar bear out of snow in our back yard which I shared with my friend Leslie who lived next door and I watched it daily until it melted away. He gave me a nick name "coon" because I like to eat corn. Told me I was part Algonquin and gave me another nick name "Two Feathers". My mom Simone and dad Réal always called him Aubert and spoke to him in french as did his parents. He has left us too soon and will be sadly missed. Adieu mon oncle Butch.

I met Butch ijust over ten years ago. He and I became friends immediately, as we both indulged in our love of our First Nations heritage. He was a big, commanding sort of figure, yet, always jokes and smiles for everyone. We went to every Pow-Wow together, for years. He would have coffee, or, dinner with me, at least, once a week. He helped me in so many ways I could not begin to tally them. He loved when I played guitar so much that he went and bought me another, for my birthday. We made traditional drums together, where he taught me so many of his wisdoms regarding making something properly. He would go out of his way to help so many. I truly love this man and often called him, Papa. I was torn apart when I learned of his passing and remain shocked and extremely sad. I miss him so much and I always will. Now, I go places and the thought always jumps into my head...Papa and I used to come here.. I'll never see that good fellow with the braid of sweetgrass in his hair..?... My life will never be so rich, or, worthy again.
