Obituary of Butch Carson
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Butch Carson on January 3, 2022 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. He will be forever missed by his adoring wife of 32 years, Beverly (née Muir); always cherished by his children: Brenda Lee, Marty (Sherry), Kerri and Jason (Mariela), his grandchildren Curtis and Keaton Carson and Caleigh Crawford. Fondly remembered by his sisters, Marlene Seinen (Rick) and Lou Soles (Gord), sister in law's Jacki Carson, Marilyn, Linda (Ralph), Naurene, and Gloria (Dave) as well as many nieces and nephews.
Butch is predeceased by his parents Ruby (1987) and John Carson (1975), his siblings Grant Carson (2013) and Joan Jenkins (2016).
Butch was born in Welland, Ontario but moved to Nova Scotia to briefly join the Navy. He then found his way back to the Niagara Region where he enjoyed employment at General Motors of Canada until his retirement. After he retired, he joined the team at Student First to drive a school bus because he just adored children. Butch kept himself busy. He was always creating or "banging nails" as he would say! His greatest love was always music. As a young man he played drums & stand up bass in a band with his brother, Grant. But he went on to play rhythm guitar and his antique Fender bass for years. And he always sang! Not just while on stage but everywhere, everyday. His heroes have always been cowboys but Merle Haggard was always his favorite. He didn’t just play music, he embodied it. And nobody loved people more than Butch. He acknowledged every person he ever met including every checkout clerk or people he would meet on the street. A man who truly had a smile for everyone. Butch and Beverly enjoyed 4 years being "snowbirds" in Mexico.
He is already missed and we will always love you morther.
