This gallery honors the memory of Papa Joe Butler, who celebrated 95 years of life, and embodied a Christ-like spirit during his entire earthly experience. This homegoing celebration was attended by many relatives and friends that knew him in life. Those unable to attend might appreciate this photo gallery, as a way to see others with whom he shared his wisdom.
The Hollins family lived next door to the Butlers on W. Philadelphia Street. My childhood memories fondly included Mr. Butler, our neighbor, and his children Dwight and Ronal remain as lifelong friends.
