30809186_1529868349480852_r.jpegI want to thank everyone who has so generously given to this family in their time of loss.  The outpouring of love and support is truly overwhelming.  Many of you have asked me to raise the goal to continue helping this wonderful family beyond the initial  funeral costs.  The financial hardship they will face due to the loss of the primary bread winner will be a little easier to withstand with the support of all of you that love Carrie and her family.


On Friday, June 22, 2018, Butch Butler passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving behind Carrie, his wife of 20 years, and two sons, Mackey, 18, and Aidan, 13, who were his absolute pride and joy.

Those of you who knew Butch, know his family was his life. Throughout the years, he spent every moment he could with his sons. Sports were always a big part of that time. Whether it was Mackey playing basketball, or Aidan playing baseball, Butch made every effort to be there. He traveled near and far to practices, games and tournaments, because nothing made him happier than watching his sons play. When he wasn’t watching them play, they were together, watching their favorite teams play.

His tragic passing has left a gaping, irreplaceable hole in his family’s hearts and lives. His wife, Carrie, was always his biggest supporter and partner. They shared the same love and commitment to their boys, spending many weekends together at ballparks or in the stands, courtside. This time together changed somewhat when Carrie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and was forced to take a step back and take care of herself. Without missing a beat, Butch stepped up and doubled his efforts with the boys, making sure this change didn’t impact them more than necessary. This was typical of Butch, who would do anything for anyone who needed something.

With his sudden passing, Carrie and the boys are now faced with more than the loss of a husband and father. They are now faced with the loss of their primary income. They are now faced with bills that will need to be paid, at a time when Carrie, who currently works as a Special Education Paraeducator, is not working because it’s summer and school is out. They are now faced with college tuition to be paid for Mackey, who graduated from high school earlier this month. They are now faced with unimaginable financial uncertainty. This GoFundMe page was set up with the hope of easing the burden this former family of four will now face as a family of three. Thank you for your support.
