Butler dedicated his post-retirement years to serving Marblehead. His passion for the town led him to volunteer at Abbot Hall, where he served and led the Marblehead Historical Commission for several years. At one point, Butler’s efforts in organizing the extensive collection of physical objects and historical documents donated to the town earned him the prestigious “Marblehead Forever” award.
