Duane Hayden Butler of Hendersonville, TN and formally of Montgomery, AL., passed away on Sunday, December 2nd, 2018 at the age of 64.
Duane was born August 15, 1954 in Louisville, KY to Christopher Lee Butler and Juanita Sipes Butler.
Duane was a larger than life character who was extremely patriotic. Duane loved music and started singing in the choir as a child and continued throughout his life. Duane relished being a husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He saw the humorous side of life and loved sharing his talents and abilities with others. Whether he was fixing someone’s broken down car or building a ramp for a handicapped dog, Duane loved helping anyone who needed a helping hand.
He loved playing golf and enjoying the beauty of God’s creations. One of our favorite quotes by Duane was “There’s beauty in everything. You just have to look for it and find it.”
Duane is survived by his wife, Emily Johnson Butler; his children Robert (Julie), AJ (April) Johnson, and Tracy (Rusty) Hall; 11 grandchildren; his mother, Juanita Butler; 2 brothers and 2 sisters.

    I have many fond memories of working with Duane at the Wetumpka, AL post office. Lots of laughter and plenty of funny stories. He was a great guy. I know you’re singing with the angels, Big D….Susie Pullen

    I did not know Duane, but from the memories shared it’s obvious that he was very special and loved by many. Dealing with the death of a loved one is so very hard to do. We look forward to God’s promise to restore our dead loved ones to life here on the earth, never having to say goodbye again. Through God’s Kingdom, Jesus will make this earth the problem-free paradise that his Father intended it to be. Until that time let your memories take you back and make you smile, let prayer bring you peace and comfort, and the support from your family and friends help you through this very difficult time.- Matthew 6:9-10; Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29
