Butler: Rexford Stull passed away peacefully in his home on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at the age of 85. Rex was a carpenter by trade who used his abilities to handcraft small wooden crosses that he freely shared as a testimony of his love for the sacrifice that Jesus has made for us all.
The son of Harold and Esther (Seitz) Stull, Rex was born in rural Butler on October 9th, 1934. Rex owned and operated R.D. Stull General Home Maintenance. He was a talented carpenter who also built custom furniture and smaller craft items. Rex loved mowing and had a deep appreciation for modern farming equipment.
Rex absolutely loved everything about aviation spending countless hours looking at airplanes, watching them being flown, and even piloting every chance he had. He also enjoyed the freedom of his motorcycle and spending time in the fellowship of his friends and family. He was a member of Three Crosses United Methodist Fellowship and will be remembered fondly for his kindness and generosity as he truly enjoyed helping others.
Rex is survived by his wife of 39 years, Joanne Stull of Butler; children Marty (Carla) Stull of Perrysville, Jackie Butterbaugh of Beaumont, Texas, Kim Stull of Butler, Randy (Tina) Stull of Mt.
