Tree Faller Found Dead

A tree faller for the Weyerhaeuser Timber Co., was found dead of undetermined causes Friday afternoon at a logging site 15 miles southeast of Vale.

Lewis county authorities said they were satisfied there was no foul play in the death of Kenneth R. Butler, 34, of Rt. 1 Box 227. Because of injuries suggesting an accident, however, the case is under investigation by state industrial insurance officials.

Surivivors include his wife, Betty; three daughters, Judy Marie, 13, Deana Mae, 12, and Bonnie Jean, 7; and a son Jimmy Wayne, 10. Born in Cottonwood, S.D., he moved to Yelm 24 years ago and had been a Weyerhaeuser employee for 15 years. He was a member of the Yelm Masonic Lodge and the Order of the Eastern Star.

Other survivors are his mother, Mrs. Ethel Clendenon of St. Helena, Calif.; five brothers, Ivan in Australia, Eugene of Tacoma, Glen of Sacramento and Milton and Oric, both of Puenta, Calif.; and two sisters, Mrs. Margarett Lemmel of Pendleton, Ore. and Mrs. Ida Mae Hawkey of McKenna.

Services will be held at 1:30p.m. Monday in the Yelm Methodist Church, with the Rev. Everett Filbert officiating. Graveside rites will be conducted by the Yelm Masonic Lodge in the Masonic Memorial Park, Yelm. Burial will be under direction of the Selene and Eros Mortuary, Olympia.
