Allen James Butler, MWO retˋd

March 13,1952 - Feb 5, 2020 There is discipline in a soldier, you can see it when he walks. There is pride in a soldier, you can hear it when he talks. There is courage in a soldier, you can see it in his eyes. There is loyalty in a soldier, he will never compromise. A soldier isn't a title that anyone can be, these special people are chosen to protect you and me....(Caleb Jones )

Forever in our hearts: wife Uschi, son Corry, daughter-in-law Kristyna, grandson Bowen, mother Phyllis, brother Joe and sisters Cathy, Deborah, Jessica, Patricia and extended family. May you Rest In Peace

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Much gratitude to the nurses and medical staff at the Dartmouth General Hospital for their compassionate care.

I recall seeing James at the School while I was there, very likeable fellow. The cook trade is a family on its own and when one is lost we all feel the loss for his/her family. Take the time to listen and remember your dreams as he will be there to comfort you and to let you know he is ok. May he rest in peace. Paul Smith
