    In the 40 plus years I have known Jack, I have not met a more honorable good hearted man than Jack has been. I was proud to call him Brother in law. He will be missed by many.

    Very saddened by this great loss, but remembering our youthful years we shared as best friends! Although my many relocations in the years that followed put space between us, my memory of all the great times we had together will remain vivid. God bless.

    A man to be measured against. Great father, loving husband and Grandfather. Jack meant so much to so many. He’ll be missed. To my Butler family; walk tall and never forget the values he taught. Rest in peace Jack Butler.

    Jack and I learned to dance to the Jackson 5. I still remember him doing the Funky Chicken.
    Good times, I didn’t get a chance to catch up with Jack. I will miss him.
