RNT Calls announced this week the company’s founder, Harry Milton “Butch” Richenback, passed away on June 29 after a long battle with cancer.

“Today we lost one of the best call makers and calling instructors there has ever been,” said a statement on RNT Calls Facebook page. “He was a true craftsman and call building pioneer. His ability to strip down call instructions to its simplest form has been rivaled by none. Teaching more world champions than any man or woman alive. His belief in producing one call that could do it all, was his belief, passion and the foundations of what RNT has been built on. His passion for calling and call building, will be sorely missed.”

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, July 1st from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at Turpin Funeral Home in Stuttgart. Funeral services will be Thursday, July 2nd at First Baptist Church, Stuttgart at 10:00 a.m. with the burial at Lone Tree Cemetery in Stuttgart.
