Celebrating Justin Butler’s life

On Sept. 20, we lost our beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, Justin Paul Butler, born March 10, 1994.

A celebration of Justin’s life and pre-game meal are scheduled for 5:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 1, at the Bear River High School football field.

We invite all family and friends to attend as we honor his life.

Words cannot describe the joy, and now the sorrow, that we have experienced in Justin’s short life.

Justin’s friendship meant so much to so many people, and he was passionate in everything he did.

Although his current passions were football and his football family, Justin loved the Lord and shared this love as he prayed for teammates on and off the field. He loved his friends and those in need.

We are so happy that Justin rededicated his life to the Lord one year ago at Hume Lake, with his brother, Bryan, at his side.

While we will never know exactly how, or understand why, his short life ended, we take comfort in the knowledge that Justin was saved and we will see him again in heaven.

Justin is survived by his parents, Eric and Kendall Butler; brother, Bryan; grandparents, Bob and Del; aunties and uncles, Delyse, Vance, Bill, Marisa, Carrie, Ryan, Deon and Norma; cousins, Alec, Kendra, Gillian, Troy, Emily and Boden; and so many precious, precious friends.

Watch over all of us from heaven, our dear son, and say “hi” to Grandma Margaret (Aug. 5, 2007)!
