James Frederick Buttrey Jr., age 79, of Terre Haute, Indiana passed away on Monday, May 6, 2024. He was born on January 31, 1945 to Frederick Buttrey and Ruth (Shelton) Buttrey.

He is survived by his wife Carolyn Huddleston Buttrey whom he married September 2nd, 1965, and his children Julie Latta (Mike) Carol Danner (Dave) Lori Helman (Carl) Daniel Buttrey (Jeni) and Jennifer Dammann (Mike). Together they have eleven grandchildren and three great grandchildren. James is preceded in death by his loving parents. In his free time James loved working on computers and HAM radios as well as riding his Honda Goldwing, but his favorite past time was sitting in his recliner next to his wife Carolyn watching old TV shows. James had a soft spot for dogs. He had several grand dogs that always came to visit, and he occasionally would dog sit for his favorite dog Molly. He was full of joy when he was around dogs. The family would like to thank Kindred Hospice and Harrison Crossing Health Campus for the exceptional care you provided for James. Per the family's wishes funeral arrangements are private. James will be laid to rest at Roselawn Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to the Terre Haute Humane Society at THHS.ORG in honor of James. Fond memories and condolences may be made at for the Buttrey family.
