Theodore Harry Butler, born on Aug. 15, 1944, passed over in his home on Aug. 7, 2018. He was taken early by cancer.
He is survived by his loving wife, Sandy Butler; children, Brian, Blaine and Shawna; grandchildren, Alexis, Kade, Rhiannon and Josie; great-grandchild, Kagan; and stepgrandchildren, Jeremy, Kendell, Rylan, Emily, Kelsie, Nathan, Logan, Lizzie and Holden.
Ted met and married his first wife, LaNae Butler, deceased, in California and moved to Cordova, Alaska, in 1966, where, together they raised three children, built a beautiful home at mile five and established themselves as commercial fishermen.
Ted began his career with IBEW in Cordova and served IBEW Local 1547 for 45 years.
While in Cordova, Ted created a thriving business commercial fishing, gill netting the Copper River Flats and Purse Seining in Prince William Sound. He loved deeply having his family aboard and fishing. He loved hunting and teaching his children how to do both.
After retiring from IBEW, he continued to create, operated rental properties and created for himself a charter business out of Whittier, Alaska, that he owned and operated as Captain and charter guide to the age of 71.
He was an incredible human being. We will all miss Captain Ted, very much and thank him for the great times and epic memories.
