You might know Bob Pavlovich as the guy who owned the Met Tavern in Butte for 50 years. You might know him as the guy who played first base and pitched for Butte’s 1946 American Legion state championship baseball team. You might know him as the politician who served 20 years in the Montana Legislature.
Pavlovich’s greatest legacy might turn out to be the Southwest Montana Veterans Home. In the two decades after he left the legislature, Pavlovich continued to fight to bring that home and the accompanying clinic to Butte. At nearly 94, he is still fighting for that cause, hoping to add another building to the facility that opened in 2021.
