Ralph N. Butler, 79. of Fayetteville, passed away Friday, February 14, 2020 in Fayetteville. He was born November 3, 1940 in Swifton, Ark., to Ethelbert and Gladys Koller Butler.
He was preceded in death by his parents; four brothers, Doug, Johnny, Ellsworth and Paul Butler; and one infant sister, Virginia Martha Butler.
Ralph enjoyed sitting on his porch, gardening and fishing. He was an avid Razorback baseball fan. He worked in the maintenance department at Walmart on MLK for 29 years. Ralph loved his job and his co-workers. He was an honest man who would give you the shirt off his back. His only request was "just don't lie to me". Ralph wasn't scared of anyone, "except for his wife"!
He is survived by a son, Bill Butler and wife, Kimberly of Siloam Springs; a son, Michael Butler of Fayetteville; a brother, Lonnie Butler; two sisters, Anna Lou Smith and Violet Jones; six grandchildren, Jared, Joshua (wife Kameron), Jeremy (wife Erin), Aiden, Austin (wife Natalie) and Victoria Butler; and six great-grandchildren.
