Rodney Alan Butcher

Age 54, of Alum Bridge, WV passed away at 3 PM on Friday, December 08, 2017 in the United Hospital Center in Bridgeport in hospice care, with his loving family by his side. He had a lot of life in his years, just not enough years in his life.

He was born in Weston, WV on April 21, 1963 a son of Everett Clayton Butcher (wife Violet) of Vadis and Twyla Jean Sleeth Butcher (husband Grant) of Buckhannon.

His kind, generous nature will be carried on by his son (who made him beam with pride) Dr. Ryan Butcher of Milwaukee, WI; one daughter, Shasts Lopez; two sisters: Vickie Shaver of Grantsville, WV; and Lisa Brake of Buckhannon, WV; half brother, Chad Butcher of Vadis,WV; two step brothers: Jason Stitt of Ritchie County, WV and Trevor Butcher of Weston; two step sisters: Dorcas Skidmore of Weston, and Heather Butcher of Weston; several nieces and nephews, who he loved beyond measure; and his best friend, loyal companion, and beloved dog, Ki-Ki, who was always by his side.

Rodney was a skilled heavy equipment operator who worked in various fields, including the timber industry, and golf course excavation. He loved the outdoors, especially the solitude of his country home. His idea of a perfect evening was to build a campfire and enjoy the love and laughter of friends. He had a heart the size of Texas, with a special place in it for strangers and strays. He was always rooting for the underdog and caring for the downtrodden who needed a little help.

Rodney’s request for cremation has been honored.

Friends and family will gather at the Pat Boyle Funeral Home and Cremation Service at 144 Hackers Creek Road in Jane Lew from 5-6 PM on Monday, December 11, 2017.

A Celebration of Life Service will follow at 6 PM from the Pat Boyle Funeral Home Chapel with Reverend Ed Lowther officiating.

The Pat Boyle Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored and privileged to serve the family of Rodney Butcher.
