Obituary for Elvis Buttrey

Stacey Elvis Buttrey, age 78, and the music he made, died quietly at home on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 after a valiant battle with an undefeatable foe- PSP.

Elvis was a husband, father, musician, farmer, woodworker, hunter, and builder. His livelihood came from building airplane wings, but his living came from making music. Of all his pastimes, his greatest joy was in picking and singing. The music he made was not in the guitar. The music was in the man. Every part of his life personified the rhythms of nature, goodness, and the soulful music he played and sang.

Elvis was preceded in death by his parents, Leachey and Marie Buttrey; son, Mike Buttrey; and step-son, Samuel Baltz.

He is survived by his wife, Susanne; son, Shannon (Angelia); step-daughter, Stephanie (Mickey); daughter-in-law, Betty; eight grandchildren; and two of his dearest friends, Martin & Thumper.

Memorial services will be conducted at Austin & Bell Funeral Home in Pleasant View at 3:00PM, Saturday, January 4, 2020 with Tommy Marvin officiating.
