Bring James Butler Home and to Rest

$23,343 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 352 people in 19 months
Created October 10, 2017
On October 9, 2017, James G Butler, age 28, died suddenly and unexpectedly while on a trip in Thailand
with his fiancee, Leighann Christian. He is survived by his parents, Karl and Cindy; his brother and sister-in-law, Kyle and Vanessa, and their two daughters, Peyton and Cali; and his sister Erika.

James spent his life helping others. He was in the Canadian Armed Forces, served a tour in Afghanistan, and upon his retirement from the forces, worked as a life coach helping veterans. He was the kind of man who touched everyone he met. Whenever he made you the focus of his attention he made you feel like you were the only one and that you were special to him.

During his short life, James had been compared to many famous people because of his eccentric personality but beneath it all was the most caring and loving guy anyone could ever know. He was equal parts comedian, humanitarian, warrior and all around great guy

One of the things they don’t tell you when a loved one passes is how expensive this can be. The cost of bringing James home will be upwards $5000, and this does not cover the cost of medical bills in Thailand, and funeral fees in both Ontario, and British Columbia where James will be put to rest. At this time, we are asking for anything you are able to offer, in order to bring an extraordinary man home.

Thank you.
