Steven "Steve" Wayne Butterworth Sr.

August 31, 1952January 1, 2021

Steven “Steve” Wayne Butterworth, Sr., age 68, of Douglasville, Georgia passed away Friday, January 1, 2021. He was born August 31, 1952 in Macon, Georgia. Steve was a CDL driver and dedicated his life to being a hard worker to provide for his family so his wife could take care of their children Steven and Evan Butterworth. He also raised his long time companion’s daughter Sara Newby, as well. While he was a man who stayed mostly to himself, he was an extrovert with those closest to him and was fun to be around. A “smartass” by nature, he was always picking on you if he liked you, expected rebuttals and encouraged debates. Steve was a history buff, passionate about Harleys; and a music enthusiast.

Preceding him in death were his parent, Cecil “Buzz” and Pauline (Hamm) Butterworth; and a brother, Jerry Butterworth.

Those left to cherish his memory are his former wife, Glenda Snow; sons, Evan (Kristie) Butterworth and Steve Snow; “companion daughter”, Sara Newby; 20 year companion who was like a sister to him, Denise Newby; four grandchildren, Bryce, Bailey, Kase and “companion grandson” Cayden; and his devoted Chihuahua for 12 years, Frank Sinatra who was by his side consistently.

No services are planned at this time.

Steve will be missed. We would argue about everything, especially history and politics. And we would be laughing all the time. I will miss our "discussions".

Good buy, old friend.

Butterworth became a beloved customer at the bp in mirror lake. He would come up and get his stuff and we would chat about any and everything. He would tell me about getting his haircut to stories from his childhood. He will be greatly missed. I will be sending up prayers for the family!

Steve was a cut up! When I drove to see Steve and Denise in Douglasville I always got lost and Denise would tell me to call Steve for the directions ! He knew his way around everywhere, using McDonald's restaurants where he used to deliver food as a guide! He would always call me "Baby" and stay on the line till he walked me through it! You were a nut, Steve! We will miss you.
