Stephen Butts of Malden and Oklahoma passed away suddenly on
April 12, 2016 at the Melrose Wakefield Hospital.
Zack was born in Enid Oklahoma on January
29, 1976 to Steand Rozetta M. (Harness) Butts. He attended Union
High School in Tulsa, OK.
Zack was a complete technical wizard who
enjoyed trying to break down to build up most things electronic.
He was constantly assisting friends and family members with
every technical question that was posed. A willing participant
in a quick battle of wits with a great sense of humor.
Zack enjoyed fishing and hunting and
generally being outdoors. His recent joys included cruising to
the Caribbean and his family in New England. His ‘wife’ Ruth,
daughter Elyse, and daughter Jessica. His Son- in-law Joseph
with whom he shared his love of video games and guns. His loving
grandchildren Justin, Halie and Abigail with whom he shared many
days of playing video games and tickles.
Quick to laugh and joke around with a smile
and persistent teasing, Zack was a gentle giant with a spicy wit
but always with a fierce belief in friendship and respect.
He is survived by his Devoted Father,
Stephen and Loving Mother Jacque Butts of Oklahoma. His long
time companion Ruth Goodwin of Malden and his sister Michelle M.
Luhrsen and her husband Tim of Missouri. Two nephews, Erik and
Elias Williams, two nieces, Alicia Sullivan and Emily Luhrsen.
As well as his very dear and close friend Lisa Hazen-Martin of
