Beloved Father and Friend

Rockford - Martin "Marty" D. Butt, 58, of Rockford, died Saturday afternoon, January 6, 2007, in his home, surrounded by his loving family and friends, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born March 19, 1948, in Rockford, the son of Tex Butts and Donna Dean Peterson. He graduated from Auburn High School in 1967. Marty was a machinist at Warner-Lambert for 35 years and a part-time farmer all his life in the Winnebago-Rockford area. He was an avid car collector, with a love for his GTO's. Marty loved to visit with everybody and be everywhere; no one was a stranger for long.
