December 12, 1996, we lost a wonderful man after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Mike was born July 12, 1957 in Murray, Utah to Edward E. Butterfield and Mary Richardsen Butterfield, he was the youngest of six children.

Mike was a special person with wonderful qualities. He had a quick sense of humor that could keep us laughing. He lived life to the fullest and was a true champion. Mike attended Murray High School where he played on the basketball and baseball team. Married Donna Kinslow, later divorced. Married Lori Campbell, later divorced. Married Annette Maurer, April 2, 1990 and they were sealed for time and eternity on April 20, 1996 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Mike loved baseball, he played on an over 30 baseball league for five years. He was a great pitcher; it was his dream come true. Mike was also a great pool player; he was one of the top players in Utah and out of state, where he won several tournaments. He was very humble and known as a gentleman in both sports.

He had a real green thumb and took pride in his yard. Mike accomplished so much in his short life and touched so many people's lives. In July, Mike had the wonderful experience of meeting with his biological son, Ben. His children, Carrie and Dylan were the light of his life. Sidney and Sarge, his "hairy little human" pets will miss him. He worked as a salesman at Butterfield Lumber for ten years and loved working with family.

Mike, you are now out of pain and at peace. You have been reunited with your mother. We love you and miss you like crazy until we are together again.
