Matthew Ryan Butler

A graduate of Octorara High School, Matthew went on to work as a landscaper for his father’s business, Fresh Start Landscaping. Matt was always very tidy and affectionately known as a “neat freak” by family and friends. He also loved Halloween – it was his favorite holiday. Matthew was the kind of person to offer to those in need the shirt off of his back. He would do anything for anyone and will be dearly missed by all that knew him. Matthew was a loving son, brother, uncle and friend.

He is survived by his maternal grandfather, Roy F. Hughes; his brothers and sisters, Cassandra Hampton, Shelby Fuller, Michael Fuller, Sebastian Vargas, Brianna Vargas, Anthony Vargas, Anthony Salerno, Timothy Butler Jr., Travis Butler, and Daniel Payne; his nieces, Addalyn Hampton and Jaylynn Salerno as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. Matthew’s memory also lives on with his best friend, Aleshia Davis. She was his greatest supporter through thick and thin. Matthew was also very loved and encouraged by his stepmother, Helena Butler, and stepfather, Alex Vargas.
