Butch, the son of Lloyd and Joyce (Landfried) Montanye, was born August 2, 1950 in Spokane, Washington. After graduating from Lakeville High School, he worked various jobs, including Jennie-O Turkey Store, Faribault, and Grist Mill in Lakeville. He married Joyce Jepsen in 1975 and adopted her two children, Mike and Deb shortly after. In April of 1978, Butch started at Crown, Cork and Seal in Lakeville and held positions of shipping/receiving and maintenance until they closed in October of 2004. In May of 1979, Butch and Joyce purchased a hobby farm north of Faribault and have been enjoying it since. Butch held various positions working for Allina Home Health Care delivering oxygen, Holden Farms, and Pleasant Manor doing maintenance until his retirement in 2012. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, flying as a private pilot, stock car racing, water skiing, and traveling. Butch enjoyed spending time with friends and family and was the kind of person who would give you the shirt off his back.
