Sheldon "Butch" Dennis Bishop, 72, of Eastport, Maine unexpectedly passed away at home on January 8, 2023.  Born on March 9, 1950, he was the son of Madonna Robinson and Sheldon Bishop.

Butch attended Eastport schools then honorably served his country in the Marine Corps for four years.  Early in his career Butch was a salesman for Ryder Trucks where he was recognized as the top salesman of the year across the country.
