Ronald T. Butters, 81, of Williamsport, passed away on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, at Rose View Center surrounded by his loving family.

Surviving is his loving wife, Sandra L. (Dunlap) Butters, whom he would have celebrated 59 years of marriage with on June 29th.

Born on November 2, 1940, in Williamsport, he was the son of the late Matthew Paul and Mary (Hiller) Butters.

He was a devout Catholic and member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and formerly attended Annunciation Church.

He was a diligent worker and a “jack of all trades”. His family, friends, and community could always depend on Ron to help with any electrical or constructional task. He was a maintenance volunteer for Bishop Neumann High School, a member of Masonic Lodge 106 F. & A.M., V.F.W. Leroy O. Buck Post 7863, Duboistown, and Harmonia Club. Ron enjoyed attending Octoberfest and dancing, especially the Polka. Above everything, he loved his family. His caring and giving nature will be greatly missed by those who knew him.
