I have the most wonderful memories of Mr Butterworth, as my woodwork teacher and my year nine section teacher. He was a clever man (he refused to take our class - 9L1 I think to Glendaruel that year). Years later he and Ruth would come into where I worked, to shop. I would say "Hi Mr Butterworth" and he would reply "Call me Jack". I eventually called him Jack. What a great man, great educator and a lovely friend to many. Condolences to Ruth and Family. RIP Jack.

To the Butterworth Family My condolences to you all on Jacks passing, I remember the good times at Portarlington with Jack and how he would always make you laugh with his jokes and his kind nature. Such a lovely man to myself and Andrew and Amelia.

My dear Uncle Jack, you were my Uncle, Godfather, mentor, family historian and in the last few years a really good friend. Loved your stories and your sense of humour. You had a very kind heart and I will miss you.

Dear Uncle Jack, I can't imagine what it would have been like growing up without you and Ruth next door.. You taught us many things, especially how to avoid detection when either climbing back over the fence or into the front windows!!! Hope we didn't terrorise you too much growing up!! To the Butterworth family, our deepest condolences on the loss of Jack. Rob, Cheryl, Warren and Mark Saunders and families
