Clifford W. Butterfield Obituary
Clifford W. Butterfield, 73, of Aniwa, Wis., died at 9:45 p.m. Monday, June 18, 2018, at the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy under the thoughtful and loving care of their amazing staff.

Cliff was born Feb. 7, 1945, in Macomb, a son of the late Carrol and Wilma Royer Butterfield. On Aug. 9, 1969, he was united in marriage to Janet Ralston in Conrath, Wis. She preceded him in death on Dec. 11, 2007.

Cliff proudly served his country in the Army when he was drafted in October 1965 and was honorably discharged in October 1967. After years of hard work, he finally retired from the Brokaw Paper Mill in 2007. He loved to joke and laugh as he enjoyed spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren, as well as riding his Harley. Although dementia stole many things from him, his quick wit and infamous "Dad-isms" stayed with him until the end. He seemed to have an endless supply of comments or smart remarks for almost every occasion that made people laugh and smile.

The family wishes to recognize the employees and nursing staff at the IVHQ for the thoughtful and respectful care they provided to Cliff in his time there. Dad didn't just live there, he was loved there.

Survivors include his daughter, Melissa Koporetz (Tom Coleman) of Rhinelander, Wis.; his son, Brian (Dani) Butterfield of Mosinee, Wis.; his daughter, Glenda (Dave) Boldig of Mountain, Wis., and his daughter, Corrie (Dennis) Tulpan, of Aniwa, Wis.; four grandchildren, Samantha Koporetz, Sydney Tulpan, Duncan Butterfield and Joshua Tulpan; one stepgrandson, Ryan Ralston; three brothers, William (Zennie) Butterfield of Taylorsville, Utah, Melvin (Brenda) Butterfield of Williamsville and Charles (Janice) Butterfield of Colchester; and one sister-in-law, Sharon Butterfield of Moline. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Cliff was preceded in death by his wife, Janet, in 2007; and his brother, Edgar Butterfield, in 2013.

SERVICES: 10 a.m. memorial service Friday, July 13, at All Faiths Chapel at the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy. Cliff and Janet will be reunited once again as they will be inurned at Sunset Cemetery.

VISITATION: Memorial visitation will be 9 to 10 a.m. Friday at All Faiths Chapel at the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy.
