Joseph Terrell Butler Jr., 83, of Dallas, passed away Wednesday, March 3, 2021.
Joe was born Feb. 3, 1938, in Savannah to his late parents, Joseph and Glenne Butler. Joe and his wife, Marion Powell, married June 17, 1962. They raised two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary, and a son, Joseph.
Joe was known for his quick wit, brazen one liners and infectious laugh. He was a master "Mr. Fix-It" who always reaffirmed his grandkids' belief that, "If it's broken, Poppy can fix it." He had a passion for woodworking and fishing, and a deep appreciation for nature and animals.
Joe will be missed by family and friends - many of whom were undoubtedly the recipient of one of his heartfelt hugs, or sincere words of appreciation or concern accompanied by an endearing "Sugar."
Joe is preceded in death by his brother, Lee Butler; his sisters, Mary Olive Ratchford and Emagene Buttimer; and his daughter, Mary Butler. He is survived by his loving wife, Marion; his children, Elizabeth (Mike) Griffitt and Joseph (Cynthia) Butler; his sister, Yvonne Falagan; his five grandchildren, Brittany (Cody) Pless, Becky (Paul) Mansfield, Grant Butler, Garrett Butler and Gray Butler; and his three great-grandchildren, Morgan Pless, Elliot Pless and Sydney Mansfield; along with several nieces and nephews.
Due to the pandemic, a small, private graveside service was conducted Saturday March 6, 2021, at Paulding Memorial Gardens in Hiram.
The family asks, in lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Heart Association
in Joe's name.
