Albert Butler went home to heaven on September 12, 2019 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

He was born March 17, 1931 in Hilton, NY to Charles and Dorothy Butler. He graduated from John Marshall High School in 1949, and then joined the US Army. He was stationed in Ft. Hood, and while there he met his wife of 67 years, Nadine Yates Butler. He served in the Korean War where he was a tank retriever. Al was a regional superintendent for Lone Star Gas Company in Waco. He had also worked for Lone Star Gas in Lampasas and Ft. Worth. He was a beloved elder at Southside Church of Christ for 33 years. The church began meeting in his home in 1975. Mowing lawns was one of his favorite pastimes.

Al was preceded in death by his parents; a son, Gary; and his brother, Roland.

He is survived by his loving wife, Nadine; sister, Margaret Seidel; daughters, Jan and husband, Clinton Tabor, Robyn and husband, Jerry Coble, and Terri and husband, Don Rowell; seven grandchildren, Michael Tabor, Melissa Tabor, Brandon Coble, Kasey Smith, Derek Coble, Ethan Rowell, and Eric Rowell; eight great grandchildren; and his beloved dog, Sofie.

The family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses for the wonderful care they provided to Al.

We were glad we had a chance to see him one last time last February. We hadn’t had a chance to see the family for a long time, but as soon as we saw him, I remembered constant good humor, and that smile of his I’ll never forget, I think maybe that’s where Terri gets it from. I’m sure he and Roland are up there telling Gary about the good old days, sure do miss the Butler Boys

Mr. Butler was a very kind and fair man who I worked for at Lone Star Gas in Waco back in the 1980's. God bless the Butler family.

I will always remember a great Poppop but an even better servant of God. Anyone he met was always shown God's love. His legacy will be that he always strived to share God's message through his words and actions to his family, friends, and strangers. I miss you!
