The Piano Brothers

John P. Butler, age 51, of Rehoboth Beach, DE, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 with his loving family by his side.

Born in Bridgeton, NJ, John was the son of John and Diane Butler. He was a graduate of McKean High School Class of 1983. For many years, John had worked at CitiBank in corporate cash management.

Family and friends were the center of John’s world. His devotion to his mother and father, his sister, and his niece and nephews was paramount in his life. John was unconditionally dedicated to his close group of friends. John will be remembered for his infectious personality, as he was loved by all who met him. He had a big heart and loved to help his friends and neighbors in anyway. John always knew how to make everyone feel special.

In his spare time, John enjoyed spending time at the beach. He was an amazing cook, whose signature dishes were his chicken pot pie and baked ziti. John also loved music, especially the classic crooners of the 1940’s like Frank Sinatra. 

John is survived by his parents, John and Diane Butler; his sister, Michele D. Lawson (Jim); his nephews, Brett and Paulie; his niece, Brianna; as well as his aunt, Sister Nancy Butler, SSJ.
