Chester “Butch” Netherton, age 67, of Tipton, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 30, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. Butch was born on February 3, 1953 to his parents, Ambrose Netherton & Ruby Ailine (Meadows) Netherton.

Butch graduated from Tipton High School in the Class of 1973. He worked as a Sheriff’s Deputy as well as a Tipton City Police officer from 1986 until retirement. Butch took great pride in serving the community of Tipton, and was also a member of the Fraternal Order of Police.

When Butch wasn’t working you would have found him enjoying his grandkids and family. He also had some amazing artistic skills; he loved to draw and paint. Butch was a big jokester with an incredibly loyal and giving heart. He was that guy who would stop whatever he was doing to help someone in need. Butch will be missed by many for the ways he impacted their lives. His family will miss him most for the love and dedication he consistently showed to each and everyone of them!

Those left to carry on Butch’s legacy of love are his Lifelong Partner, Judy Netherton; Children, Chester “Butch” (Shannon) Netherton Jr., Andrew Netherton; Grandchildren, Kailey Netherton, Abigail Netherton, Lauren Netherton, Kayla Parker, Kylie Richardson, Jordan Martin, Elizabeth Netherton, Britney Netherton; Brothers, Larry (Norma) Netherton, Terry Netherton; Sisters, Debra Bess, Diane Stout, Darlene Peters; as well as many Nieces, Nephews and Cousins.
