Larry Don Butler

November 27, 1941 ~ September 20, 2022 (age 80)


Larry Don Butler, 80 of Wabash, Indiana left this world at 7:54 a.m. on Tuesday September 20th, 2022, at Millers Merry Manor East in Wabash IN to join his wife Stevie Kaye (Novotney) Butler who passed away on May 30, 2022. They were married for 61 years. 

Larry was born November 27, 1941, in Carbon, IN to William Lawrence Butler and Zella "Virginia" (Parsons) Butler. 

He was preceded in death by his wife, parents and 3 brothers. Larry is survived by two daughters, Virginia “Jenny” Butler of Wabash, Indiana, Sonia (Mike) Holley of Roann, Indiana; two grandchildren, Derek (Kelli) Holley of Roann, Indiana, Paige (Alex) Holley of Evansville, Indiana; three great-grandchildren, Arie Holley, Bryce Holley, and Levi Markle.

Larry was employed for over 40 years at Anaconda/Alcan in Terre Haute, IN. Prior to his retirement Larry and Stevie raised their children in Brazil, IN. Their house was always full with friends of their children with lots of game playing and laughter. Friends were always welcome. It was not uncommon for Larry to load up the neighborhood kids and take them to Dairy Queen or bring home a 747 pizza. 

Larry was a 1959 graduate at Van Buren High School. Larry briefly attended Indiana State University.

Larry and Stevie moved from Brazil, IN to Terre Haute, IN after their children left home where he was very involved in their church. They spent many enjoyable summers at their cabin on the lake near Jasonville, IN. Approximately 16 years ago Larry and Stevie moved to Wabash, IN in order to be close to their children and grandchildren. 

In his younger years Larry enjoyed fishing and mushroom hunting as well as playing games with his children. He was a former member of the Elks and always enjoyed watching sports on TV. 

Private family graveside services will be held on Friday September 23rd at Falls Cemetery in Wabash, Indiana.
