Lawrence G. Butchli

Lawrence “Larry” Gerard Butchli passed away on July 2, 2021, at the age of 67 in his home in High Ridge, Missouri. 

A natural storyteller who radiated charm and captured the attention of everyone he met, Larry will be remembered for his quick wit, joyous laugh, kind heart, and warm smile. Quite simply, to know Larry was to love him — forever. 

Larry is survived by sons Nathan (Samantha) of St. Louis, Missouri, and Jacob (Lauren) of Woodridge, Illinois; sisters Joanne and Sylvia of Green Bay, Wisconsin; two grandchildren; and three nieces. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Adam and Adeline Butchli, and sister Nancy Butchli.

A private celebration of life is planned for a later date.
