Mr. Robert "Bobby" Butler, age 76, of Mt. Sterling, formerly of Morehead, and St. Cloud, Florida, went home to be with the Lord, Thursday morning, Feb. 2, 2017, at the Windsor Care Center in Mt. Sterling.
He was born Sept. 5, 1940, in Rowan County, the son of the late William Lovel and Opal Roberts Butler.
Bobby was the President of the Soldier Church of God conference and was former Pastor of Lake County Church of God in Griffith, Indiana, Hannah Road Church of God in Mansfield, Ohio, and Ocean Street Church of God in St. Cloud, Florida.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Chloe Jean Madden Butler.
Bobby is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Les A. and Beverly Butler of Smyrna, Tennesee; two grandchildren, Matthew Allen (Kimberly) Butler of Smyrna, Tennessee, and Amber Dawn Butler of Murfreesboro, Tennessee; and one sister, Anna Sue Fritter of St. Cloud, Florida. He also leaves many other family members and friends who will sadly miss him.
He loved the call of being a pastor. There was nothing he would rather do than visit the sick in their homes or hospital rooms.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 10, 2017, at Globe Funeral Chapel in Olive Hill, with Brother Don Paynter and his son, Brother Les Butler officiating. Burial will follow in the Bowen Chapel Cemetery in Olive Hill.
