Timothy Butcher Timothy Butcher, 45, son of Samuel J. Butcher and Kathie E. Yott, died in his home Oct. 14, 2012. He was a great son, brother, and a friend to many. He was a talented musician, artist, and scholar. He had a strong love for science and an amazing sense of humor. In his own words, he would describe himself as "roughly 43kg oxygen, 16kg carbon, 7kg hydrogen, and less than 1kg of nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus and those other predictable elements." The Butcher family will be honoring Tim's life with the Timmy's Tower Memorial to be constructed at Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, Mo. This memorial will showcase Tim's writing, art, and music. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Precious Moments Foundation in Carthage, Mo.
