Announcer Walter “Butch” Krieger has passed away. No age was provided.
An official cause of death has not been announced yet. He passed away on Friday at his residence, according to a Facebook post.
“For decades, Butch Krieger provided his voice for some of the most iconic moments in truck and tractor pulling history across many prestigious events including Bowling Green, Louisville, and Chapel Hill among many others,” Petro Motorsports said in a Facebook post. “He was a great person that will be remembered fondly by so many in the pulling community. Please keep Miles, Jeremy, and the whole Krieger family in your thoughts through their difficult time.”
We do not have information on his passing. He died in Greenville, Indiana.
“Much like our mothers passing, Dad went quickly and without suffering,” Miles Beyond 300 said in a Facebook post. “While the sudden loss has us completely numb, we also realize that Dad is now living in a far better world now and he has been reacquainted with those he loved and admired in Heaven.
“We have often joked that we couldn’t go anywhere with dad where he didn’t know someone; and at times it was often annoying but he loved it and ultimately should have run for office at some point in his life.”
His death came one day after Thanksgiving. It comes during the Holiday season.
“It is our hope that in the coming days, weeks, or months, when the spirit moves you to share a story, your favorite experience, or highlight with our father, that you will share it in this forum with us as a means of healing and therapy,” the statement said. “As the Holiday season arrives, we will covet your prayers as Christmas was Dad’s absolute favorite time of year and his inner Chris Kringle would often gleam for all to see.
“Details of his visitation and funeral service will be posted in the coming days. In the mean time, we want to also request that you pray for dads companion Ruth and her family as this loss isn’t just limited to us.”© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved.
