Norman “Norm” Leroy Butler

Goldsboro, NC

March 29, 1944 - October 19, 2018

Norman Leroy Butler passed away on October 19, 2018, in Goldsboro, N.C. He was born March 29, 1944 in Roseburg, Ore. to Gilbert and Mary Oma Butler and grew up in the Days Creek and Canyonville area with brothers, Chuck, Wayne, Jim, and sister, Cheryl. He married Peggy Remitz May 4, 1970 in Enumclaw, Wash., and their daughter, Lori, was born shortly after. The family moved to Okanogan, Wash. in 1972 when Norm accepted a position at the Biles-Coleman Lumber Mill in Omak; and daughter, Lisa, joined the family in June 1974. Norm went on to serve as Director of Public Works at the City of Okanogan for many years before retiring to become a full-time grandpa. Norm is best known for his playful spirit; love of fishing, from which he still holds the Washington State record for largest Rainbow Trout caught (29.6 pounds); and his love for his family — especially his grandchildren. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Peggy; daughters, Lori Aliment (Scott), Gig Harbor, Wash., and Lisa Blevins (Johnny), Pikeville, N.C.; grandsons, Daniel, Jacob and Brian; and granddaughter, Emily.
