Harold Francis Lockwood was born on September 11, 1941, in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin to the late Fredrick and Lucille (nee: Hammer) Lockwood. He graduated from Beaver Dam High School, class of 1959. On October 17, 1959, he was united in marriage with Carol Kunkle at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Beaver Dam. Butch worked at Kraft Foods for 40 years and, in “retirement”, he worked for Banes Auto for 20 years. Butch was an avid Packer and badger fan. He also enjoyed NASCAR racing and he loved going out to the local dirt tracks and supporting the local drivers. He loved to watch his great grandsons race their motorcycles and other great grandchildren’s activities, as well. Butch was a regular at the twice-a-day coffee club at McDonalds and he will surely be missed by all of them. He was a member of St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church in Beaver Dam.
