Soldotna resident Clifford Trent "Pete" Butler died Sunday, Nov. 5, 2000, from a battle with colon cancer. He was 63.
A celebration of life service will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Butler home on Tote Road in Soldotna. His ashes will be scattered at a later date.
Mr. Butler was born Sept. 12, 1937, to Allen LaMonde and Marcel Butler in Salt Lake City. The family later moved to Burley, Idaho, where he spent his childhood and part of his adult life driving a truck across the United States. In 1980, he moved to the Kenai Peninsula, where he later married Carol Howell on July 17, 1981, in Soldotna.
"Cliff loved helping people. He enjoyed his volunteer work for the Soldotna Equestrian Association. Even with the battle of cancer, Cliff was an organ donor," his family said.
Mr. Butler was preceded in death by his father, mother, stepfather and a brother, Hyram Butler.
He is survived by his wife of 19 years, Carol of Soldotna; daughter and son-in-law Megan and Jeromi Noel of Soldotna; sons Kevin Butler and his family of Clyde Park, Mont., Burke Butler and his family of Reno, Nev.; daughter Suzette Brice and family of Rupert, Idaho; brother and sister-in-law Allen and Polly Butler of Burley; sister and brother-in-law Carol and Les Schultz of Burley; sisters-in-law Vickie Howell and Carolyn Lancaster, both of Anchorage; stepbrother Lamont Dudley of Rupert; and stepsister Karen Dudley of Salt Lake City.
