This is Debbie Butler - Mike's wife. I am posting the very sad news that Mike passed away on February 4th, 2022. Mike was a good man and a good friend - always doing small favors for the folks in our neighborhood. Because Mike was able to be home when our son Mikey was young. As Mike has been best friends with Roger for 72 years, being at home made it possible for Mikey to become lifelong friends and brothers with Cody and Ryan for the past 27 years. Mike was always there and was Dad to all. This has been the most beautiful and significant gift in his life. He loved playing and recording music with "Uncle Kim" many times sharing tracks via email but, whenever there were family get togethers - there was always the music and Mike's beautiful voice. The last few years have been very difficult for Mike as he had progressive degenerative spine problems that caused him a great deal of pain which got to the point, he could no longer play golf - one of his life's passions. My son and I hope that now he is no longer in pain and has found peace.
