Charles F. 'Butch' Ferriter passed away July 26, 2007.
He will be forever remembered for his devotion to family and friends, the respect he earned professionally, and the positive impact he had on the students he taught and coached.
Many would describe him as the fairest, most principled man they had ever met, earning the love and respect of all those whose lives he touched.
Butch was a 1957 graduate of Central High School, where he played on the 1956-1957 Big 8 championship team and graduated from the University of Arkansas at Monticello, where he lettered in basketball.
His coaching career took him to McGehee High School, where he coached two championship teams, taking them to the state playoffs, and on to Texarkana, where he was head basketball coach and assistant football coach.
One of his greatest accomplishments was the establishment of the athletic program at Pulaski Academy, where in his nine years with the Academy, his teams became among the most respected in the Mid-South Association of Non-public Schools (MANS).
During his tenure at Pulaski Academy, he fought to obtain and won membership for the school in the Arkansas Activities Association, where he served many years on the board of directors.
Coach Ferriter�s dedication and loyalty to the students of Pulaski Academy earned him the honor of having the 1980 school yearbook dedicated to him.
A Web site has been established by 'Butch's Kids' (all his former students), www.butchisms.com inviting contributions of the coach's memorable 'one-liners.'
Butch will be missed by those he left behind, especially his loving wife, Jauan Ferriter; sister, Chris Curley; step-daughter, Holly Francis; and the light of his life, his granddaughter, Madelyn James, who was the daughter he never had.
He was preceded in death by his first wife, Connie Quimby Ferriter; mother and step-father, Mildred and C. J. Curley; and one of Butch's Brothers, Harry Vines.
The family wishes to express a heartfelt 'thank you' to the nurses and staff of Baptist Hospital and Baptist Hospice for their compassionate care of Butch and his family during his time with each agency.
