07/28/1942 — 08/16/2022
From Pasco, WA | Born in Muskogee, OK
Born July 28, 1942, the 4th of six children, to Roy and Reba Lomon in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Preceded in death by his parents and siblings, James, Dennis, Vonna, and Sue. As well as his son-in-law Dan Welker. Survived by his wife, MaryLou (Kelly) Lomon, daughter Shannon Welker, and sister Patsy (Lomon) Podesek. Grandchildren, Rylan and Shaylee Welker, and great-grandchildren, Tana and Lucas. As well as many nieces and nephews.
As a child of a Manhattan project employed father, in a government housing community, in the 1950’s he had a very adventurous spirit and spent every waking moment, hunting and fishing. He graduated from Columbia High School in 1961. Butch later married the love of his life, MaryLou (Kelly) Lomon and they had one child, Shannon, born October 29, 1961.
After working at some local gas stations, Butch went to work on the #2 fuel line at Hanford. Butch later went to work for Boise Cascade, as a heavy equipment operator. He retired after 35-plus years in 2001. In 1973 the paper mill went on strike for several months and Butch and MaryLou decided to take up snow skiing with sister Patsy and her husband Jerry, which took them on many wonderful family trips to Mt. Bachelor and Schweitzer mountain, creating great memories. They also enjoyed many summers boating and fishing in Tri-Cities, potholes, and Moses Lake, and a few years exploring Tuscan, Arizona with her sister, Yvonne, and husband Doug. After retirement in 2001, Butch and MaryLou enjoyed their home in Pasco and always looked forward to the annual LABOR DAY pool party with family and friends. They also enjoyed many years of four-wheeling on the Oregon coast and RV traveling. Butch loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and always looked forward to summer get-togethers. His memory will live on in all of us and he will be missed.
In his words, GLAD YOU GOT TO SEE ME!
Even though Butch was my uncle, he was more like an older brother to me, maybe because he wasn’t that much older. I always admired him and looked up to him. He always made me laugh and we would get the giggles together. My dad taught him how to hunt and enjoy the outdoors, many bird hunting seasons were enjoyed by those two. I have many fond memories. You will be missed
