Zip and the whole Button family were great friends to many and none more than the Seba family. He and Stan were two of my heroes growing up and I will always think fondly of our many poker games that were more about good times than money. RIP my friend.
Rest in Peace my friend
My heart is broken, RIP Zippy
Good memories of Zip as our boys were growing up. Our dog Rowdy loved to wander over to his house and Zip would give him a bowl of food. He was so proud of you, Evan. We’re keeping you all in our prayers.
Prayers for the family! Rest In Peace my dear friend!
My sincere condolences to the Button Family. Rest peacefully Zip. Prayers for your family…
