Butte, Larry Paul  
Larry Paul Butte 08/15/1939 - 07/08/2015 Larry Paul Butte, our dear husband, father, and friend died suddenly on July 8, 2015 while on a fishing trip in Northern Nevada. Born August 15, 1939 in Newark, Ohio, Larry moved to San Mateo, Calif. with his family in 1956. He married Beverly McClelland May 31, 1958 at age 18 and they started their life journey together. They moved to Half Moon Bay coastside in 1967 where they raised three children. After retirement from Schlage Lock Company of San Francisco in 2005, he and Bev moved to Auburn, Calif. where he continued to enjoy his passions of fly fishing, hiking and backpacking until the day of his death. Larry was a kind, easy going man who could always find the good in everyone he met. He made friends wherever he went and considered all friends "family." He unselfishly gave of himself, his time and energy to anyone who needed it, never wanting anything in return. In addition to his love of the outdoors, Larry was a man of deep spirituality and as one of Jehovah's Witnesses volunteered innumerable hours ministering to others. His firm belief in the promises the Bible holds out brings his family great comfort in this difficult time. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Beverly, children Terri (Tom) Sadlowski of The Woodlands, Texas; Cheryl (Rob) Kiseleff of Auburn, Calif. and Gary (Lina) Butte of Milbrae, Calif. He also leaves behind 5 grandchildren: Scott and Megan Sadlowski, Nicolette Kiseleff and Alexander and Andrew Butte. Sisters Jewell Butte of Joplin, Mo. and Jody Butte and Cindy Mull of Hundingdon, Pa. also grieve his passing. Services will be held July 25, 2015 at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 8370 Berg Street, Granite Bay, Calif. at 2:00 p.m.

Eliopulos, Gus  
Gus Eliopulos 07/17/1919 - 07/20/2015 Gus Eliopulos, a life-long resident of Roseville, Calif. died July 20, 2015, at the age of 96. He was born July 17, 1919 in the home of his parents, Louis and Helen Eliopulos, who emigrated from Greece in the early 1900's. Gus was the last survivor of six sibblings, who, like he, never left the Roseville area. He grew up in a tight-knit multi-cultural neighborhood, where the hardships of the Depression were nobly endured, and friendships were forged with life-long tenacity. In those challenging years, childhood games often consisted of building things out of scraps of wood or throwaway items, which undoubtedly contributed to Gus' creativity and mechanical talents later in life. In 1937 Gus graduated from Roseville High School. He was tall and very lean, but his strength - along with a little fibbing about his weight - got him a job at PFE, hauling huge ice-blocks for the refrigerated rail cars. From there he went to work at McCellan AFB as a machinist, where his natural talent, and the mentoring he received from his beloved Uncle Huck, gave him a long and rewarding career of 33 years. When World War II erupted, Gus was called to serve. He trained as a tank driver in the scorching Mojave desert, ironically having later to endure Europe's coldest winter on record as he contibuted to the grueling, hard-won victory of the Battle of the Bulge. Having suffered burns, frostbite, and shrapnel wounds, Gus ended the war in his fourth tank. He earned several service medals, including the Purple Heart, but he was most proud of driving his tank through the gates of Nordhausen to liberate the POW's from one of the most horrific Nazi concentration camps. After the war, Gus returned to his job at McClellan, took his Model A off blocks, and began to court an independent young woman who had escaped the brutal winters of northeastern Montana. He and Marian Fournier married in 1948, forging a loving bond which would last him the rest of his life. They had two daughters, Betty and Jane, who remember their father as a devoted family man and hard-worker. After he retired in 1973, he kept busy building and fixing things, cooking gourmet meals, and maintaining a big yard, still planting flowers in his 90's. His greatest post-retiremenmt project was the Roseville Veterans World War II Monument. Gus and his life-long friends, Edo Pieracci and Bob Doyle, spearheaded the project and worked through to the completion of the beautiful granite monument which contains the names of the 1275 Roseville World War II veterans. Gus is survived by Marian, his wife of 67 years, daughters Betty Sliopulos-Demas (Eli) and Jane Ostling (Steve), grandchildren: Pete Demas, Melissa Demas, Dawn Brooks, and Kristie Griffith, and great-grandchildren: Spencer Brooks, Logan and Arianna Griffith. By wish of the family, a private committal service will be held at the Roseville District Cemetery, 421 Berry St., Roseville, Calif. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Gus' name to VFW Post 1487, 110 Park Dr., Roseville, Calif. 95678, or a charity of your choosing.
