Butch was baptized during the summer of 1970 at a Gospel meeting conducted by Jimmy Allen. He has served as a deacon at Southwest Church of Christ in Amarillo, South Church of Christ in Baton Rouge, Westgate Church of Christ in Beaumont, and Woodlands Oaks Church of Christ. He was appointed as an elder at Woodland Oaks Church of Christ around 2003.

Butch and Linda have been blessed with two children and seven grandchildren. Their daughter, her husband, and their four children live in the Dallas area. Their son, his wife, and their three children live in Austin. These seven grandchildren are among their greatest blessings.
