Professor T V Buttrey was the father to my best childhood friend in the Burns Park neighborhood of Ann Arbor Michigan. I remember him riding his bicycle to campus through the neighborhood, and his black and white TV shows on Sophicles and other Greek philosophers/story tellers, how cool that was to a ten year old child. He had two grand pianos back to back in the dining room to play with his children. A very happy household from my perspective.

My condolences to the family

Dear Buttrey Family,

My heartfelt condolences to you all. Your father, brother, grandfather, was an extraordinary teacher and mentor, to say nothing of a great scholar. I learned a lot about life through his teaching about the ancient world and I was inspired to keep uncovering the truths he could find in the ancient texts, of which he was the master. Your father was always quick with a great story, a profound commentary on life and literature, or funny joke to the delight of students and friends. He was my friend and teacher for over four decades. I will miss his sage advice, his wisdom and his friendship as I am sure so many others will, too. He demanded excellence in his students, colleagues, friends and the world and he made all of us and the world much better for it. He was a dear heart, generous with his time and his knowledge and so larger than life that it is hard to imagine the world without him. I hope there is some small comfort in knowing what a fine man, teacher, friend and human being he was and that he made a difference in the lives of everyone who was lucky to know him.

Stephanie, I'd prefer to send a card, but have no idea of an address. So I'll take this way. As I think you know, I loved your father as a teacher. I still count him in the top 10 teachers (including my beloved 3rd grade Ms. Amos) of my entire life. He was rigorous, provocative, probing, occasionally scathing -- as were our ancient Greeks and to all our delight -- and always entertaining.

His were classes that no one ever cut. He was a wonderful wonderful man, a brilliant and sweet teacher -- in short, a true mensch!

May he rest in peace, though I fear he might find that boring. I pray all four of you, and his grandchildren, will find solace in knowing how much pleasure and joy he brought to the existence of all who knew him.

My love to all of you.
