William Butler

William Curtis Butler

Jackson, Tennessee

William Butler, age 41, passed away on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at Jackson Madison County General Hospital.

He was born in Jackson, Tennessee on February 22, 1980 to Steve and Teressa Butler.

In addition to his parents, William is survived by his sister, Sara Butler McLemore (Jeff) and nephew, Joshua.

He is also survived by his "Dear", "Love of my life", wife, Marne Allen Butler of Arrington, Tennessee married on March 22, 2020 and her parents, Bob and Jane Allen; Marne's sister, Kelsey Williams (Gray) and their children Kailin, Jaxon, Grayson and Logan; Marne's brother, Jonathan Allen (Chelsea) and their son, Joseph; and numerous aunts, uncles, and friends that were like family.

William was a Christian saved by grace! He wanted to make sure others knew of his faith through speech, thought, and deed. William liked to be known as a "Renaissance Man" of sorts. Most would describe him as a gentle "giant", a teller of stories, a giver of any and all kindness and a collector of friends from all walks of life. He began his walk in this life gentle and strong and remained until his final walk with Jesus.

Through his love of medicine, William worked to perfect computer technology systems for various medical services to enhance the lives of others.

William was an experienced musician playing trumpet, french horn, and mellophone from middle school on to high school graduating in 1998 from North Side High School in Jackson, Tennessee. William achieved his Eagle Scout and Order of the Arrow through Brown's Church Troop #205. He went on to gain a music scholarship playing mellophone marching in the University of Mississippi "Pride of the South" Band.

There will be a private graveside service and a public celebration of life event held at a later date.
