He was born August 28, 1956 in Oil City, a beloved son of the late: Floyd and Barbara Carson Haylett.
He was a 1975 graduate of Rocky Grove High School.
Cars and working on them was Butch’s lifelong passion. His vast knowledge of cars and his expertise working on them, always had made him a much sought after mechanic at many local automotive businesses through the years. He enjoyed auto racing, as well. He looked forward to following and attending the area’s many dirt track races, as well as keeping up to date with Nascar racing.
He was a member of the National Rifle Association.
He is survived by a brother, James Haylett and his wife Duetta of Columbus, OH and a sister, Lee Freeman of Newark, OH; his nieces: Kimberly and her husband, Derrick and Melissa. He was always especially close to his “special cousins”: Brenda Aue and her husband Robert and Rich Cochran and his wife Susan.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Cindy Schoppel.
In keeping with his wishes, there will be no public visitation.
Private interment will be in Franklin Cemetery.
