Butch was born at home on the dining room table, the son of George and Jessie (Krueger) Rohrbeck on February 17, 1941. He attended Healy rural school in the Springvale Township and graduated from Cambria High School, then attended MATC for welding. He was united in marriage to Diane Ruck in 1970 and purchased a farm on Pardeeville Rd., where they raised their five children. Along with hog farming Butch worked for Jaques Seed Company and then with Dean Foods (Del Monte) as a mechanic until his retirement. He enjoyed family, his dogs, racing, sports and restoring tractors. He was a proud fan of Matt Kenseth, Wisconsin Badgers, Green Bay Packers and was a great story teller as well. Butch was a member of the Rio Redeemer Lutheran Church for many years.
