David was born December 13, 1964, in Springfield, MO. He is the son of the late Junior Ray and the late Grace Evelyn (King) Butler. He married Tammie Garrett on September 1, 2017 in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
David was very proud to be a retired US Army veteran, serving both overseas and stateside during multiple tours of duty. His family and his grandchildren were his pride and joy.
He enjoyed camping with family and friends. David also liked setting up and maintaining his fresh water aquariums. While traveling he collected coffee mugs from all over. His engineering and mechanical skills could be seen in a lot of his hobbies: he liked trains, boats and Harleys. He also made clocks in his spare time.
He is survived by his wife: Tammie Garrett-Butler, three daughters: Heather and David Singell of Blue Springs, MO, Naomi Singell of Blue Springs, MO, and Bianca Coy of Excelsior Springs, MO; and one son: Brian and Codie Butler of Blue Springs, MO; one brother: Rick Butler; eight grandchildren: Constance, Ivy, Paige, Addison, Coner, Lilyan, Jett, and Gianna; and mother-in-law: Bertha Dye.
In addition to his parents, David was preceded in death by his brother, Danny Butler.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the family for the grandchildren’s college funds.
