BERWYN, PA - With heavy hearts, the members of the Berwyn Fire Company regret to announce the passing of Life Member William J. Butler. Bill joined the Company at the age of 16 as a school boy fireman in 1941. He was a lifelong resident of Chester County. At a very young age, he and his family moved to Berwyn. He was a resident of Berwyn for 58 years before settling in the West Chester area.

He served honorably in the United States Navy during World War II, in the South Pacific and South China Sea. He was a member of the Navy League, Philadelphia Chapter. In 1947, Bill went to work for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. He started in surveying, where he worked for fifteen years. He then transferred into construction where he worked for twenty years. He began as inspector, then moved up to project engineer on roads and bridges.

During his 79 years of membership at the Berwyn Fire Company, Bill served as a volunteer firefighter and was recognized multiple times by his peers as Firefighter of the Year. He was the most active responder twice as a firefighter and twice as an ambulance attendant. He also served in various leadership roles and committees during his volunteer service: President, Treasurer, Financial Secretary, Trustee, By-Laws Committee, Fair Committee, Parade Committee, House Committee, Communications Committee, Building Committee, and Membership Committee.

In addition to his parents, William was predeceased by his siblings; Helen T., Thomas, John Francis and Michael Butler. He has no survivors. Services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are requested to Camilla Hall, 1140 King Road, Immaculata, PA 19345.

Bill will be remembered as a legend for his dedicated and faithful service at the Berwyn Fire Company and to the Tredyffrin-Easttown community.
