June 8, 1947 - August 24, 2020

It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Butch Villeneuve on August 24, 2020, at the age of 73.  Butch will lovingly be remembered for his infectious laughter, kind heart and the countless hours he dedicated to helping others.

On July 10, 2020, Butch celebrated 20 years of Sobriety and during those years, he helped many people learn how to live the simple life of recovery.  Teaching them to be happy, joyous and free, up until the day he joined his creator.
