Obituary for Floyd Vernon "Butch" Folwick

Floyd Vernon "Butch" Folwick, Jr.,born on August 5, 1942, a proud and hardworking Norwegian American, who peacefully passed away at his home in Maple Grove on May 11, 2024, surrounded by his family. Fondly known as "Butch", he was a dedicated veteran of the US Air Force, who had a life-long love for his country and passion for the Constitution.

Butch worked hard and enjoyed his life. He loved to be outdoors on his tractors and faithfully tried to garden each year - occasionally he was successful but sometimes not. He loved to mess around with his tools in his woodshop - this was his "getaway". The RV was always a special place to him - whether on the road or just sitting in the driveway.

Butch's life was one filled with love, dreams, and close-knit family bonds. His deep care and affection for his family, especially his wife, Katie, were evident in everything he did. Love lived in their home along with many dreams - some that were fulfilled and some that were not...but it was fun to dream.

A beloved husband, father, and friend, Butch is survived by his wife of 61 years, Katie; son, Timothy; daughter-in-law, Amy Jo; siblings, Richard, Susan, Cheryl, and Douglas; and many nieces & nephews. Preceded in death by son, Toby; parents, Floyd, Sr. & Vivian; and siblings, Alan, Linda, Thomas, and Jon.

As we gather to honor his memory, we remember him not with sorrow but with joy for a life well-lived.

He was a good guy!

These people are wonderful. They went over and above in every possible way to help us with funeral arrangements, the visitation, service and burial, despite the fact that we had a limited budget. They were patient, kind, and treated us like family. This is a funeral home you can trust. Thank you, Evans-Nordby.
