Paul E. Butler
WALLINGFORD - Mr. Paul Edward Butler, 73, of Wallingford, passed away Wednesday, November 5, 2008, at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in White River Junction, Vt., due to complications from pneumonia.
Paul was born September 22, 1935, in Danby, Vermont, the son of Clarence and Kathryn (Landon) Butler. He was a graduate of Burr & Burton Seminary (Academy) with the class of 1953. He enlisted in the United States Air Force and was a veteran of the Korean War.
During his life, Paul had several occupations but most recently and for the past several years, he owned and operated Otter Creek Small Engine Repair at his home in Wallingford. He could always be found at a tag sale looking for that "great deal." Being a hunter and fisherman, Paul was a longtime member and avid supporter of the National Rifle Association. One of his greatest enjoyments in life was watching and rooting for his beloved Boston Red Sox team and always looking to stir up a good controversy with one of his many friends.
Paul is survived by his wife of 49 years, Becky L. (Lackey) Butler of Wallingford; his daughters, Vicki of Pensacola, Fla., and her children, Elijah and Jacob, and Kathi of Des Moines, Iowa, and her children, Andrew and Michele; his three great-grandchildren, Gabriel, Faith and Xarah. He is also survived by his sister, Evelyn; his brother, Gene and his wife, Kathy; and nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Janice.
To honor Paul's request, there will be no visiting hours or funeral services.
For those who wish, expressions of sympathy in memory of Paul may be offered to the Wallingford Rescue Squad, in care of Rita Reynolds, Cook Drive, Wallingford, VT 05773.
As Paul would say, "Let's get to whippin'."
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Durfee Funeral Home & Cremation Service in Fair Haven, Vt.
