Obituary of Tristin Joseph "TJ" Butler
Tristin Joseph “TJ” Butler, age 15, of Vandalia, became one of heaven’s angels Sunday, November 10, 2019.

He was born August 21, 2004 in Yakima, Washington to James Butler Sr. and Michelle Perkins.

TJ loved anything he could do in and on water, playing hide and go seek and slug bug. He was a football player on the Ross Beatty Junior Varsity Football Team. He had an infectious smile and had a passion for Halloween. TJ adored his numerous nieces and nephews. He affectionately called his mother “Madre” and was the sunshine of her life. TJ will be missed tremendously by everyone he came in contact with.
