BUTLER, Wayne Levern
Age 62 of Green Hill, Pictou Co., passed away on Wednesday, March 11, 2015, in the Aberdeen Hospital, New Glasgow with his family at his side.
Born in Berwick, he was a son of the late Douglas and Blanche (Boudreau) Butler. A loving and caring father, Wayne will be dearly missed by his daughter, Dawnita and son, Christopher; sisters, Lynn Pignatelli (Paolo) and Pat Butler; brothers, Loran (Judy) and Jim Butler; former wife and friend, Lori Hill-Best (Allan); along with several nieces and nephews.
Wayne was a proud and dedicated employee of NSGEU for many years where he passionately shared his beliefs while remaining true to himself. During his time there, and in his previous career as a motion picture projectionist, Wayne impacted his coworkers with his humour, dedication, and his desire to “get things done.” Wayne’s long lasting, cherished friendships saw him through his final days.
In his private life, Wayne’s diverse interests included backgammon, antique cars, and a stellar collection of vinyl. These passions were as unique in character as the personalities and friends that he shared them with, from British Columbia to Ontario to Nova Scotia.
His greatest attribute was his love for his children, Dawnita and Christopher. They represented all of the things that any parent would wish for, as they were his greatest joy.
Wayne will be sorely missed by family, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances alike.
Cremation has taken place. A family service will be held in Argyle Head at a later date.
Donations in Wayne’s memory may be made to Aberdeen Palliative Care Society, New Glasgow, NS. Arrangements are under the direction of Eagles Funeral Home.
