Neil H. Butler '67

Neil Howard Butler, 65, of Tallahassee, FL went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on January 4, 2015. The son of a Navy pilot, he was born in 1949 in Port Hueneme, CA and spent his childhood living in many cities around the world. His family eventually settled in Florida where Neil attended The University of Florida before getting his law degree from Florida State University (though he remained a lifelong Gator).

He practiced law in Tallahassee for 25 years with an emphasis on construction issues and he co-authored a book on the Florida Construction Lien Law. An avid golfer, Neil was known to friends and associates for his quirky sense of humor and exuberance. He was a longtime member of Faith Presbyterian Church.

Neil is survived by his wife Sandy of Tallahassee, their two children Neil Butler Jr. (Kara Owens) of Los Angeles and Carin Butler of Tallahassee, one grandchild, Brooks Butler of Los Angeles, his father John Butler (Alda) of Melbourne Beach, FL, his brother Curtiss Butler (Lee) of New York and nephews Julian Butler of New York, Sean Butler (Amy) and great niece Elaine of Orlando.

A private memorial service is planned. In lieu of flowers the family suggests a donation to "Manna on Meridian", c/o Faith Presbyterian Church, 2200 Meridian Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32303.

Culley's Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
