For so many years he (and ultimately Ricky) farmed the Cloys/Charles/Chris/Tina Butterworth farm with such diligence and mastery. The Cloys & Palmer Butterworth descendents will always hold Jimmy in high esteem and love.

So sorry to the family in Jimmy's passing. He was a cousin to my father, Charles Butterworth, and tending to my dad's land for many years. Such a lover of farming and hard worker, loving husband and father. I know how much he will be missed. Many loved ones are welcoming home.
