Butch TroutButch is happy to be in his new position, heading up maintenance at The Ridge at Chestnut Hill. “There’s a good feeling of security here—people looking out for each other.”

Although he’s new to the job at The Ridge at Chestnut Hill, Butch has been doing maintenance work for Casto Communities property management since 2003. Prior to taking that job, he owned his own business in Newark, an appliance repair shop where Butch also sold the used appliances he had rehabbed.

Although he brings years of experience with him, Butch says he’s glad that he had the chance to learn about this community from Gary before he retired. “Gary gets everything done perfectly,” and he says they share the same philosophy about their work, “If it’s done right the first time, you don’t have to go back and do it again.”

Butch lives in Newark with his wife of 41 years, Ramona. ”Anyone who knows us says she deserves a medal!” They have two grown children, a son and a daughter, along with two grandsons and one more on the way. What’s his favorite hobby? Grandchildren!
