Baby Butler Legacy Fund

On July 12, 2016 we lost a great man, a terrific friend, a loving brother, world's best son, kick ass uncle, caring husband, a nephew like a son, and a cousin like a brother. John was able to light up any room with his bright smile and contagious laugh. He lived his life to the extreme. Anyone who saw his firework displays or Halloween and Christmas decorations, witnessed his enormous enthusiasm. John was a friend to everyone and was always there to help. John continued to give to others after his death; as an organ donor he was able to save many lives. This act continued his tradition of being such a caring and giving person.

John leaves behind many loved ones. Most importantly is his unborn child. He was so excited to become a father and was eagerly planning the arrival of his first child. John was always wonderful with children. He was a kid magnet. John was the best Santa Claus on Christmas Eve because his love for children and his family. He would have been the world's greatest father.

I am John's cousin, Shonna. I am creating this page for John's unborn child. All of the money raised here will help provide his son or daughter with the life that John had imagined for his child.

John had a love for life and lived his to the fullest. His wife Lauren has a village waiting to help her with Baby Butler. No monetary amount will replace John, but it will help ease the burden and allow his child to live their life to the fullest. Words cannot express how much John was loved and how loved his baby will be.
