Earl Vivian Butler, 91, passed away on Sunday, November 29, 2009, at his home in Scottsville, with his daughter by his side.

He was born on February 1, 1918, in Fluvanna County, a son of the late Samuel Vivian and Mattie Perkins (O'Brien) Butler.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 68 years, Frances Farrish Butler; two brothers, Forrest and Sammy Butler; and one sister, Juanita Dansey.

Survivors include his daughter and son-in-law, Beverley and Charles Baber; and a brother, Malcolm Butler and his wife, Gertrude, of Scottsville.  He will be dearly missed by many people, especially his brother, who lived next door.

Earl was a member of Scottsville United Methodist Church.  He was very proud that he served his country for more than four years during World War II.  After returning home in 1945, he worked as an automobile mechanic in Scottsville and later in Charlottesville.  When he retired, he and his wife enjoyed collecting and refinishing antiques.

No one could have been loved more than Earl was by his wife and daughter.  He was a kind, caring, unselfish person who put everyone else's needs above his own.  Everyone who met him loved and respected him.  He was a true servant of mankind.

There will be no formal visitation night.  A viewing will be held from 12 until 5 p.m. Wednesday, December 2, 2009, at Thacker Brothers Funeral Home in Scottsville.

The funeral service will be conducted 11 a.m. Thursday, December 3, 2009 at Scottsville United Methodist Church by the Reverend Jeane Dunkum.  Burial will follow at Scottsville Cemetery.
