A native of Cocke County, Bob attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
He served in the US Army in Europe during World War II, and he was a recipient of the Purple Heart. Bob was an electrician and a proud member of IBEW Local #760 for over 60 years. He was also a competitive checker player. Bob won many local and state tournaments over the years, and he was the National Champion in the Majors Division in 1972. He was preceded in death by his brother, Bon Butler; and wife of 64 years, Dorothy Owenby Headrick Butler.

Survivors: children, Dennis (Linda) Headrick, Karen (Con) Hunley, Suzanne Butler-Baumgardner (Keith); and granddaughter, Brittany Hunley.
