Jerry "Buttman" Butts - HMM-165
It's with a heavy heart that I have to report the loss of a great friend and a true Marine, Dr. Jerry Butts. Jerry passed away at his home in Ft. Collins, CO. on July 15th. He flew 46's in
Vietnam with HMM 165, and later transitioned to 53's in New River, N.C. After the Marine Corps, Jerry moved to ado where he met the love of his life, Margie, got his degree in veterinary medicine, raised three terrific kids (Jason, Lindsey and Kevin), and operated a successful veterinarian practice for 31 years. He was a tireless family man, friend and patriot. He was an avid outdoors man, passionate about hunting, fishing, dirt bikes, shooting and much more. His sense of humor knew no bounds and he only saw the bright side of life. We're lucky to have had someone in our lives who makes saying goodby so hard.
