Vale John Butler
We advise that on Saturday, 18 May 2019, John Butler passed away in the early evening.
Melissa and I and Alan Clark were so fortunate to see him on Friday.
I can say that John’s memory was as sharp as anything and to his family, we express our deepest condolences.
John was a wonderful man and a great leader of our Sunshine Coast law firm from 1954 until his retirement in 1988.
We know that John was still working on his memoirs when he passed however, what he has completed in those memoirs will be a wonderful read.
His guidance as a senior partner at this firm when I arrived in 1977 until his retirement was invaluable.
He was a great lawyer but first and foremost a wonderful man.
May he rest in peace.
