Mike will be missed by all who knew him. He was always the most kind and considerate person to me and my family. He is fishing in calm seas now.

We grew up with But (We never called him Michael - he was always But to us) in the East End of Galveston. One year But, Tracy, Kirk and I along with a couple of other kids got together and gave Hiney a bra for Mother's Day. This was one of the funniest memories we had together in Lindale Park. How could any of us forget listening to Bad Company back in the 70's when the pink 8-track tape with a black label held the hits we played over and over like Bad Company, Shooting Star and Feel Like Making Love. Driving around in Kirk's brown jeep listening to Ted Nugent - Strangle Hold could have been our anthem. We all grew up fishing together, stealing Bourbon from Mamma Elliott's stash, having a beer from Jack's keg and a cigarette or two from my parents. I love my childhood with you But - growing up just being kids. I don’t remember a bad bone in But’s body and he was a tall skinny dude with lots of bones. Rest in Peace

Mike was just a great guy. I guess it was his time to sit next to the King.

Words cannot express how my heart goes out to the Butler family in this time of loss and sadness. May you find comfort and peace from the friends and family who love you as well as all of us who are praying that you find the strength to endure this loss. Revelation 21: 3,4 expresses the hope that all of us have for a peaceful life on the earth free from pain, suffering, and death, and is a hope we can depend on, for God cannot lie (Titus 1:2).

My heart is heavy knowing that Mike has left us far too early. My thoughts and prayers are with all his family and friends. He always had a smile on his face, so kind and upbeat. He will continue be fondly remembered by all of us who grew up along with him.
