We are deeply sorry that somehow we missed the news of Bill's passing. We have no valid excuse other than it has been a challenging year for Terri and I and also for our family.

We, of course, will always keep both of you in our hearts and in our prayers.

Bless you for your friendship and for making the world a better place by being a part of it.

My sincere condolences to Judy and all the Butler family upon the death of Bill. Bill was a wonderful person, active in so many activities helping others. Ill always remember him with a big smile on his face.
One memory I have of Bill and Judy, a number of years ago, when they gave my husband and me tickets to the Kalamazoo Symphony. The tickets were for seats in the Grand Tier. Our name is Grantier. We all laughed.

Bill was such a special person. He will never be forgotten by his loved ones and friends. Judy: I regret so much not being @ the services.. I wanted to hold you tight and tell you how much you and Bill meant to Jerry and I.. I will do that when I see you. My heart goes out to you and your family. My prayers are with you.. May Perpetual Light shine Upon Him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Butler family. On a trip to Detroit with Mike, I had breakfast with Bill and Judy. We talked for a couple hours. Despite his health challenges, Bill was such a gracious and thoughtful man - a truly good person.

Dear Judie-- Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. It seems like yesterday that Bill and Ron drove a homecoming car at Pennfield High School. Knowing you from St. Philip, Nazareth College and Pennfield High School seems like yesterday but I am so glad you both had a wonderful life together and for many years.
May God bless you and yours, always,
Ron & Joan (Larese) Tuttle

I have many great memories of Mr. Butler from my childhood. He created the Indy 500 pool every year and I loved participating in that. His deviled eggs at the 4th of July started my lifelong love of them. I will always carry these great memories of him with me the rest of my life. He and my dad playing tennis together. And on and on... RIP Mr. Butler.
