John E. Butler, Sr. MANSFIELD: In 1943 John E. Butler, Sr. entered the U.S. Army Air Force. Committed to serving God and Country, the young 18-year-old joined the 398th Bomber Group of 603 Squadron and was small enough to fit into a B-17 ball-turret as the gunner. On his 16th mission over Germany, Butler's plane was set afire, and the crew bailed near Leipzig, Germany. Taken as a prisoner of war, he was shuttled from the POW camp at Stettin on the Baltic Sea to Nuremberg to Munich. He endured Germany's harsh winter of 1945 and the bad soup that appeared to be boiled water with grass. The former turret gunner passed away Tuesday morning June 9, 2009 in the Hospice House of the Hospice of North Central Ohio. Born John Edward Butler on February 3, 1925 in Olive Hill, Kentucky to William and Myrtle (Stone) Butler, he came to Mansfield following the war to find employment and a future. He completed his education by graduating from Mansfield Senior High School, and later attended The Ohio State University. John landed a job with the then thriving Westinghouse Company, and he served there 41 years, retiring in 1986. He was a member of North Central Ohio American Ex-POWs ~ and faithfully attended their monthly meetings in Wooster ~ Disable American Veterans and the Perrysville Veterans of Foreign Wars. 53 years ago John offered the basement of his home as the first meeting place for the Lexington Church of the Nazarene. The congregation outgrew the basement to meet in a tent, and later to their present building on Clever Lane. Described as a "pillar of the church", John had served on the church board this entire time. Evenings and weekends, John spent any free time, first building the church, and later maintaining it. He also served as church treasurer, led youth groups, and ensured the property was properly maintained. So loyal was he to the mission of the local church that "John was there every time the church doors were open." An avid reader, he enjoyed all sorts of books but preferred a good mystery or suspense novel or Louis L'Amour western. Generally quiet, John was man of few words. But when he spoke, he spoke the truth, and important words of guidance. He is survived by his wife, Pauline (Mentzer) Butler, whom he married November 26, 1983; son and daughter-in-law, John, Jr. and Judi Butler of Lexington, daughters and a son-in-law, Susan & David McClenathan of Bellville, Julie Seamans of Mansfield and Amy Wright of Cincinnati; eight grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; a brother and sister-in-law, Raymond and Marjorie Butler of Sun City, FL; sisters and brothers-in-law, Ethel & James Lookabaugh of Mansfield, and Mary & Tom Grubb of Grayson, KY; a sister-in-law, Sue Butler of Mansfield; nieces and nephews; and his church family. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Norma E. (Stallard) Butler on September 3, 1981; brothers, Albert, Russell, Herman, Noah and Lois Butler and a sister, Madge Butler. The Butler family will receive friends Thursday, June 11, 2009 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home, where the funeral service will be held Friday at 11 a.m. the Rev.

East Kentucky Journal published July 30, 1925 A Good Woman Gone The funeral fo Catherine Giles Jarvis, the only daughter of Mr.and Mrs. Luther Giles of Grayson, and the wife of Eddie Jarvis of Olive (Hill), was held in the Methodist Church sunday morning and conducted by the pastor Rev. Crites, after which the body was laid to rest in the Grayson cemetery. Catherine, as we learned to call her, was a good girl, a good woman, she had a good father and a good mother, both who mourn the loss of an only daughter. The writer knew her, he knew something of the family history. It is a history full of deeds of kindness as all who knew can testify. The father, mother, husband and brothers may console themselves in knowing that the daughter, wife and sister, had an abiding faith in Him for she was assisted to her knees a short time before the breath left her body and sent a petition to her Heavenly Father. Mrs. Jarvis was born December 29, 1899, died July 23, 1925. At an early age she professed faith in Christ and lived a constant Christian to the end of that life. In 1918 she was married to Eddie Jarvis, of Olive Hill, and since that time had lived near that place. THere was born to them five children, all of whom are too young to realize their loss or to know the worth of a good mother. The husband with the help of his relatives and friends can no doubt keep the children together and rear them in the admonition of the Lord as the mother wished. A very large number of friends and relatives of the family from a distance attended the funeral. Among them were J.D. Littlejohn and family of Portsmouth, Miss Katherine Littlejohn of Atland, Ben Giles and family and Mrs. Roberts of Huntington, W. C. Quisenberry and family of Lawrence County and Lawrence Giles of Russell. Submitted by: Ann Horton Mefford turtle111 at windstream.net

Also, the school gained Bible-college accreditation, paving the way for accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 1983. Kentucky Christian College now has 550 students. Its main focus is training ministers for independent Christian churches and churches of Christ. Mr. Lusby retired in 1977 but remained active in campus affairs as chancellor. Although he moved to Canton, Ohio, a few months ago, he retained an office on campus and worked with alumni. "I feel a tremendous personal loss and the entire KCC family will miss him greatly," said Keith Keeran, the college's current president.

Palm Beach Post, The (FL) - April 5, 1999 Deceased Name: KY. COUNTRY BOY LOVED CHALLENGES The good old boy from Olive Hill, Ky., helped bankroll a Broadway comedy on Jackie O's life and plunked down more than $1 million on a musical revue of Johnny Mercer hits. He lost a bundle. Fortunately for Roger Dean, the automobile magnate who died Saturday at 79, he had more luck with tune-ups than show tunes. In the half-century after buying a small Lincoln-Mercury dealership in Athens, Ohio, Mr. Dean amassed a fortune approaching $100 million, became the namesake of Jupiter's spring league baseball stadium, trained a new crop of millionaire car dealers and established Roger Dean Chevrolet in West Palm Beach as one of the top Chevrolet dealers in the country. And to hear him tell it, he remained a tough country boy with an ''Irish rage'' and a determination to be the best. ''I wanted to be somebody,'' Dean said several years ago. ''I came from a family with little or nothing. The most money my father ever made was $35 a week.'' Liked challenges ''I like being me, I like being Roger Dean,'' he said. ''I like being able to do things other people wouldn't consider. It's a challenge, and when that challenge goes away, a person becomes an old man.'' Mr. Dean said one of his first challenges came as a kid in Kentucky when he'd have to hunt down his father, who periodically disappeared on drinking binges. After high school, Mr. Dean entered Ohio University in Athens, working full-time while earning a degree. He opened the Ohio dealership in 1946 and later had more than a dozen Ford outlets in West Virginia. He said an argument with Ford prompted him to sell his Ford stores and buy five Chevrolet dealership's ''within the hour.'' By the time Mr. Dean settled in South Florida in the early 1960s, he was a multimillionaire and one of the largest car dealers in the country. He employed and tutored men who went on to become multimillionaire dealers themselves. While building his business locally, Mr. Dean occasionally ran into trouble. One dealership admitted selling a used Camaro as new; another briefly closed after placing a fraudulent ad in 1975; and a manager admitted selling at least one car with a false odometer reading, according to court records. During the 1980s, Mr. Dean also accumulated badges of wealth, including two 90-foot yachts worth about $4 million, a $5 million Palm Beach mansion and private jets. But he eschewed the socialite circuit, saying he preferred the company of close friends to cocktail parties. ''I've been called a loner. I don't go to parties - I don't believe in them,'' he said in a 1980 interview. ''I don't want to stand around with a bunch of people with a drink in my hand kidding each other.'' Mr. Dean's private life became very public in the early 1990s during his divorce from Ruth Dean, his wife of 22 years. During the trial, his wife accused him of stealing her $1 million diamond ring, and a judge accused him of hiding millions of dollars, court records show. Mrs. Dean said the couple's expenses included $10,000 a month for travel, $7,000 a month in clothes and $2,600 in restaurant tabs. She listed her monthly contributions to charity and churches as $20, according to court records. Mr. Dean eventually agreed to give his wife $17 million, but was held in contempt of court for refusing to pay. Despite his wealth, Mr. Dean had little impact on the county's charities and social scene. Instead, he said he preferred to focus on setting up friends and employees in business. He also said he often paid to send his employees' children to college. Roger Dean Stadium was named after him when his daughters donated $1 million to the construction costs. Daughter Patricia Dean, an officer of her father's car company, declined to comment. Unlikely venture In 1997, the self-described ''good old boy'' took on an unlikely and expensive challenge: Broadway producer. He and Bob Cuillo - the owner of the former Burt Reynolds Institute for Theatre Training on Clematis Street - each invested $1.5 million in Dream, a musical revue of Johnny Mercer tunes. The play hit Broadway on April 3, 1997, exactly two years before Mr. Dean's death, and closed four months later after 109 performances. Both men and other investors lost most of their money, they said. In November 1997, Cuillo and Mr. Dean joined with Mark Schwartz of Palm Beach to produce Jackie, a comedy based on the life of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. It closed after just 128 shows. Cuillo trumpeted the fact that he and Dean would both attend the premiere of Dream, but Dean didn't show. Cuillo said that because Dean owned his own jet, he could have been anywhere. Asked why he invested in the show, Dean said simply, ''You do funny things when you get a little money.'' Staff researcher Lynne Palombo contributed to this story.

Courier-Journal, The (Louisville, KY) - May 14, 1999 Deceased Name: LArry Buster Lowe ALIce Lowe KAthryn Richie GAry Richie Deaths of two families shatter mountain neighbors JUDY JONES, The Courier-Journal PIKEVILLE, Ky. When their brothers and sisters left Appalachia to move north in search of better lives, Larry ``Buster'' Lowe and his wife, Alice, stayed in Pike County. Their daughter, Kathryn, loved the mountains, too, and when she married Gary Richie, the couple decided to stay in Eastern Kentucky and make a life there. The families were close - they even lived across Lower Johns Creek from each other. Tuesday evening, they died together in a crash on the Mountain Parkway and will be mourned in a joint funeral service Sunday. Besides the other driver, the only survivor of the crash was 2-year-old Laken Puckett, Kathryn Richie's grandson, who was strapped into a child-restraint seat. Friends were reeling yesterday from the deaths. ``These people were unique in Pike County, and their loss creates a void that will never be filled,'' said Karen F. Gibson, Pike's judge-executive and a childhood friend of the family. ``(The Richies) were both very intelligent. She was bubbly and artistic. He was great with computers.'' The entire family made work for themselves so that they could continue living in Pike County. Kathryn Richie, 40, rose at 3 a.m. every morning to run a newspaper route for the Lexington Herald-Leader. She also had an artistic bent, painting in oils, designing and marketing her own line of dolls and starting a candle-making business. Gary Richie, 53, who was born in Ashland, grew up in Olive Hill. He worked for American Office System of Charleston, W.Va., and was proficient with electronic equipment, including computers, ham radio and copiers, said his son Keith Richie, 34, of Raleigh, N.C. His father was also a pilot. ``And he loved his politics,'' Keith Richie said. ``He worked for Karen Gibson. He even worked for Gatewood Galbraith.'' Gibson, the judge-executive, described the Richies' 10-year marriage as ``something that was just meant to be - they were so supportive of each other.'' They had no children together. ``Kat and Gary, this was a second marriage for both of them,'' Gibson said. ``They had a short-weekend courtship, and got married, but you know, they were happily married ever since.'' The Richies and Lowes had gone to Lexington to visit a baby born Monday night to Kathryn Richie's daughter from a previous marriage, Jessica Puckett of Lawrenceburg. The Richies and Lowes were taking Laken, Puckett's son, home with them so that they could tend to him while she recuperated. The Richies and Lowes were traveling east in a 1996 Geo Tracker when they collided with a 1999 Chevrolet pickup driven by Ralph Good, 26, of Lick Creek in Pike County about 8 p.m. near Adele. Good was listed in fair condition late yesterday at the University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington. Laken, the 2-year-old, was upgraded from fair to good condition yesterday at the hospital. Kentucky State Police in Morehead are trying to determine which vehicle crossed the center line on a two-lane area of the parkway in Morgan County. Buster Lowe, 60, was a retired machinist who lost an eye in a machine-shop accident 20 years ago. He continued to work on farm equipment and garden. Alice Lowe, 59, was a homemaker. Both families liked farming, and the Richies bred dachshunds. Buster Lowe is survived by brothers Gary and Billy Taylor sisters Shelia Taylor, Jacquelene Jordon and Nelma Akers two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. His wife, the former Alice Faye Hensley, is survived by sisters Dixie Leslie, Billie Rife and Linda Reid two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Besides Jessica Puckett and Keith Richie, Gary and Kathryn Richie are survived by sons Danny Richie and Jason T. Howard and four grandchildren. The joint funeral will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at Lucas & Hall Funeral Home in Pikeville, with visitation from 7-9 p.m. today, and anytime tomorrow. All four will be buried in the Lowe family cemetery in Lower Johns Creek. The union of Gary and Kathryn Richie, above, was ``meant to be - they were so supportive,'' said Pike County's judge-executive.

Associated Press Archive - July 16, 1998 Deceased Name: Ronnie Sparks - Fugitive sought in triple shooting found dead The search for an Ohio fugitive wanted for questioning about the deaths of three men near a cave on a remote trail ended when the man apparently shot himself to death. Ronnie Sparks, 40, died Wednesday night, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest, Carter County Deputy Coroner Ernie Holbrook said. A passerby found Sparks' body, with a shotgun nearby, in an open field near where the three men were shot after riding all-terrain vehicles Sunday. Police had been searching the rugged, remote area for Sparks, an Olive Hill native wanted in Richland County, Ohio, on a probation violation stemming from a February burglary conviction. Witnesses reported seeing Sparks in the area after the bodies of Randy Stevens, 19, Douglas Middleton, 21, and Scotty Middleton, 27, were found Sunday night by other ATV riders. The site near Tarkiln Cave, 85 miles east of Lexington, is along a popular trail for horseback and ATV riders. Investigators believe Sparks may have been hiding out in caves in the area for months. "There are miles on end of heavy foliage and cliffs where people could hide," Olive Hill patrolman Larry Tackett said. "With dogs after him, he could possibly hit a creek and go six to 10 miles in the water away from them."
