Danny Dean Butler, 82, of Mesquite, Texas, peacefully entered the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, November 12, 2022. He was born to parents Olan and Mary Lucille Butler, on June 23, 1940, in Rector, Arkansas. Danny graduated from Bearden High School in Bearden Arkansas and received a BA degree from the University of Arkansas. Danny became a chemist for Dr. Pepper and finished his career with Continental Insurance, which later became Allstate Insurance. Danny married his wife Louise in 1985, who survives him. Danny is also survived by his sister's Sue Butler, Crystal Dempsey and her husband Mike, and Milly Douthit, his son David Butler and wife Jackie, Bill Bradford, Ben Bradford and wife Dee, Don Bradford and wife Tina, daughters Vanessa Carrington, and Melinda Carrington and her husband Shun. Danny was the proud PeePaw and Grandpa to Jon Butler and his wife Rebecca, Jacob Butler, Rusten Pierce, Erika Watson, Melanie Carrington, and Jaren Dean Johnson. He was also blessed with great grandchildren: Harper Ann Butler, Jaxon Dean Butler, and Bennett Anthony Butler. Danny was predeceased by parents Olan O. Butler and Mary Lucille Butler (Stallings), and his two older brothers Wilfred Butler, and Farris Lee Butler. Danny was known for his love of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Arkansas Razorbacks, and the Washington Redskins, and his love for playing a good spades game. However, what Danny was really known for was his love for his family and those around him. Danny had this unique quality about him that made everyone he came in contact with feel special. Even in his last days, his concern wasn't for himself, but rather, everyone gathered around his bedside. If the Christian life is summed up by how much we love God and others, then he truly understood what it meant to live the Christian life before us all. The memorial service will be held on Friday, November 18, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. at the New Hope Funeral Home & Cemetery in Sunnyvale, TX, with burial to follow.
