Butch & Cindy Kuecks


Cindy and Butch currently live in Canton, GA, just outside of Atlanta.

Before retirement, Butch, a licensed professional engineer, spent the majority of his career in higher education providing leadership and professional guidance to university administrators in the planning, development and project delivery (design and construction) at several prominent universities. These include the University of Washington in Seattle, WA and the University of Texas in Austin, TX. He contracted for and managed architectural and professional engineering firms and contractors to accomplish the missions of the universities. Butch directed a team of in-house staff architects, professional engineers, planners and other technical staff to support the institution’s planning, capital project delivery, operations and maintenance.

Cindy has been in healthcare most of her adult life. She started as a LPN, advanced to a RN, then finally attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville for her masters and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner certification, at the age of 52. Cindy’s most rewarding job was at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, TX working with complex medical patients prior to surgical procedures. It was shortly thereafter that Cindy discovered her hearing loss had worsened, which eventually became an obstacle in delivering excellent patient care. This led to a premature retirement.


Both animal lovers, the Kuecks have two wonderful Australian Shepherds and two cats (foster failures). These four pets are Cindy and Butch’s joy and the center of their lives. Luca, their 6-year-old Aussie was recently diagnosed with lymphoma, so while walks are now more limited, he continues to enjoy car rides and sitting outside in the shade.

Cindy also enjoys Bible study, researching on the computer, and watching her favorite goat farm’s YouTube channel.


During their 41 years of marriage, the Kuecks have lived in 6 states (FL, IL, WA, TX, ID and GA) and have lived in 17 different homes! Yes, Cindy loves change although she and Butch are now both ready to settle down.


The Kuecks were attracted to Legacy for many reasons. They like that Legacy will be a brand-new equity model CCRC where future health care needs can be met in one location. They appreciate they could reserve a home with a fully refundable deposit. They love the beautiful location with four seasons to enjoy. And they are excited that everyone will be new together.


Butch is looking forward to making new friends, not having to deal with home maintenance issues, the walking trails and the dog park.

Cindy is looking to be involved in an interest group pertaining to dogs/pets as well as a Bible study group. She’s also interested in being part of the Welcome Committee, as she wants to help others feel comfortable and reassured they made the right decision in choosing Legacy for their retirement home.
