Rest in peace, Dick Butt

Sep 3, 2014

To think, we just got over the loss of Pervert Dave. And now this happened.

On Friday, 93-year-old Richard A. “Dick” Butt passed away in his hometown of Spokane, Washington, after struggling with heart disease for several months. He was born in Washington state on April 4, 1921, and had seven siblings. His parents, Will and Helen Butt, raised him on a farm. The obituary in the Spokesman Review noted that, in high school, Dick “was remembered for his pitching prowess.”

In 1945, Dick married Bessie Olsen. And, from there, Dick and Bessie Butt settled down after Dick’s stint at Broadmoor College. Dick became a massage therapist and had operated his own practice until 2007. “He was a legend in his field,” the obit added.

Dick is survived by his children Susan, Sandy and Steve as well as his grandkids Bret, Kendra, Kristen, Beau, Bart, Di-Anna and Zackary. He also had 18 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. His brother, Bob Butt, is also still alive.

The memorial service is scheduled inside the Rose Chapel at Hennesseey Funeral Home on September 5.

The Hennessey Funeral Home and Crematory has provided a web page for those who wish to leave their well wishes to Dick and his loved ones.
