CALVIN O. BUTTS III 4ab.jpg

Truly we consider ourselves blessed 

to have lived in the time of

Dr. Calvin O. Butts III

who truly loved us best! 

Some may say he was a bit gruff . . .

Sometimes even pointedly candid with

words that 'pinch & sting' oh so rough!

Oh so true - through and through!

DR. CALVIN O. BUTTS III

DID NO COWER!

WITH COURAGE HE PERSEVERED

BOLDLY TAKING ACTION THROUGH HIS YEARS: 

WITH SINCEREST

HONESTY . . . HE

SPOKE TRUTH TO POWER!

With "good works and stewardship" -

We shall labor in his Love!

Dr. Calvin O. Butts III:

Leader, Teacher,

Friend!  Of Our Beloved
