Celverster G. Butler (Cy Tike), 81 years old, of Mechanicsville, MD entered the gates of Heaven on June 1, 2020. He was born on September 12, 1938.
Cy was preceded in death by his mother Sybil (Butler-Adkins) & his Father, Kelly Wade Butler, his son, Bruce Butler and his mother-in-law Emogene Preston.
Cy is survived by his wife of fifty-five (55) years, the love of his life, Diana Butler (Preston), his daughter Sandi Junge (Mike), his seven (7) grandchildren, Christopher, Jason, Jeffrey and Amanda Junge, Jessica, Grayson and Weston Butler and one great grandchild Connor Junge. He is also survived by his sisters Phyllis (Lewis), Vicky (Tiny), Pat (Jack), Debbie (Walter), and brothers David (Debbie) & Jimmy. He is also survived by his father-in-law Willard Preston, Sr, his brother-in-law Willard Preston, Jr (Cindy), sisters-in-law, Judy Crisp (Luther, Jr.), Cindy Bond (Allen), Deborah Proffitt and Renee Kravats as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Cy honorably served in the United States Navy from 1955-1964 on the 'USS Gunston Hall and USS Spiegel Grove'. He then served as machinist at NAVORDSTA, in Indian Head, MD; as an industrial specialist, for NAVAIR at the Navy Yard, in Washington, D.C. and in Patuxent River, Md. After retiring, he worked for a few years with several Navy contractors. Cy was an extremely intelligent, respectful, kind, caring and giving man who touched the lives of many people.
He adored his wife and family and loved playing with his grandchildren. He was a strong Christian man. He loved to be outdoors. He loved gardening, crabbing, fishing and working in his yard. He loved to build computers and mentor others. He was an ordained Southern Baptist Deacon, a Baptist Men's Ministry (brotherhood) leader and a discipleship Bible teacher. He was also a Men's Sunday School teacher for many years. He loved the Lord Jesus Christ, his family, and his friends and thoroughly enjoyed studying and teaching God's word. Cy will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.
Due to the pandemic and the desire to keep everyone safe (as he would have wanted) the family has opted to have a Private Funeral Service at Hughesville Baptist Church, on June 23, 2020 at 9:15 a.m. They would like to invite everyone to watch via live-stream at the link provided on the home page of the Brinsfield website. We ask that only the immediate family arrive ahead of the service to ensure a prompt start time. We will use the church protocol to keep everyone safe. Private Interment will follow the ceremony at Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery with full military honors.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to either the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home, 29449 Charlotte Hall Road, Charlotte Hall, MD 20622; Hughesville Baptist Church, 8505 Old Leonardtown Road, Hughesville, MD 20637; or the Alzheimer's Association, https://act.alz.org/site/donation.
(Obituary was lovingly written by the family.)
