   Donald Ray Butler, 69, was born on November 28, 1949 at Skiff in Newton, Iowa, to Homer G and Wilma Ruth Wearmouth Butler.  He was raised by his Uncle Jake and Aunt Babe Johnson.  They did have real names though.  Donald graduated in 1968 from Newton Senior High School.

   He hired on at Maytag in 1968.  The following January he married Rosie McCumber.  They were blessed with three children.  But, more blessed as the kids grew up and brought their friends home.  He was a likeable guy and played well with others.

   Those left behind are really going to miss him.  His owner: Miss Lynn Halsey Taylor is not a happy dog right now.  No ones face to clean.  His wife Rose; and their children: Sarah, Jeni (Brian Shirrell) and John; grand-children: Joe, Rachel, Chris, Presten, Chelsea, Chelci, Ben, Nyckolle, Cara Rose &  John; great-grandchildren: Bryson, Aiden, Jacoby, Brentyn, Presten Duane, Memphis, Grayson, Roni Ann, Elijah, Goedric & Leona; his brother Earl and his wife Marilyn…(Mark and Jane); his out-laws: Rodney and Mary McCumber, Ronald McCumber, Teresa and Danny Young, Sandra Cluck; lots of nieces and nephews; and many friends.

   Those gone before him include his parents Homer Butler and Wilma and Floyd Harper; his grandparents, Ivo and John Wearmouth and Tom and Babe Johnson; his in-laws Frank and Helen McCumber; his brothers-in-law Mike, Walt and Dan; and his sisters-in-law  Susan and Edee.
