Obituary

Obituary for Reverend James Edward Butts, Jr.

Reverend James Edward Butts, Jr. of Falling Waters, WV left this world due to natural causes Friday, October 9 at Doey’s House in Hagerstown, MD. He was the son of the late James Edward Butts, Sr. and Lyda Mae (Murphy) Moore.

He was a member of New Hope Bible Church in Martinsburg and a graduate of Elk Garden High School.

James was a jack of many trades, but he spent most of his career life in real estate with Town & Country and King Street Realty in Martinsburg, and as a dispatcher for Family Dollar.

He is survived by his children, Douglas Shawn Butts, Laura Jane (Shawn) Martin, Grace Lemae Winifred (Brandon) Mueller, James Walter Butts, adopted daughter Heather Marie Gramling Douglas, and many of his childrens’ friends who lovingly called him “Daddy Butts.”

His grandchildren were the greatest joy of his life: Dylan Shawn Mueller, Katelynn Lemae Winifred Mueller, Evelyn Rose Mueller, Benson Lee James Mueller, Jonathan George Mueller, and his GrandPug Georgia Martin.

He was preceded in death by his wife Jeanne Laura Butts, sister Linda Elaine Butts, and his second father, Cecil Benjamin Moore.

He is survived by his sisters Dolores Carol (Ron) Harvey, Jean (Charles) Filer, Vicki (Teddy) Abucevicz and his brothers Robert (Bonnie) Moore, James Moore, and half brother Ben Kelly, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

James loved Jesus, music, family, genealogy, people, British comedies, and his pet parrot Ziggy.

A viewing will be held at 11 am, Monday, October 12 at Highway Assembly of God, 3634 Kitzmiller Road, Kitzmiller, MD followed by a service at noon. Interment will follow at IOOF Cemetery in Elk Garden, WV. Services will be officiated by Reverend Dewaine Jones.

I hired James at Family Dollar and never in my life did I think he would always be a great friend that I loved with all of my heart. We shared so many laughs and inspirational talks and he always had stories about thing going on with his family Jeannie, Laura, Grace and Jamie! He loved and boasted about his family with all of his heart! My prayers for the children, what a glorious reunion he had with your dear momma. Rest In Peace Janes E. You will forever be in my thoughts and heart!

RIP my longtime friend. I will remember those many years of school bus rides to Elk Garden and the many movies we watched at the Kitzmiller, Maryland Theatre. I will miss seeing you at Kitzmiller Days and the many celebrations at the Nethkin Hill Methodist Church. Condolences to the family.

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
