Butch passed away on January 30, 2020. He was preceded in death by his parents and grandmother Clovie Schofield.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife Teri Jackley of Mount Ayr; daughter Brenda (Earl) Keate of Creston, IA; sons Elton “Junior” (Monica) Jackley Jr of Phoenix, AZ and Michael Hall of Red Oak, IA; six grandchildren Bianca (Tyler Levelle) Jackley, Elton “Tre” Jackley III, Haley Jackley, Nicole Keate, Brittany Keate, Marshall Keate and; two great grandchildren Grey Karley Levelle and Kingsley Ray Spaulding; six sisters Donella (Marv Innis) Thurman of Des Moines, IA, Bonnie Alden of Mount Ayr, IA, Beverly Rutherford of Mount Ayr, IA, Jolene (Steve Fletcher) Jones of Kellerton, IA, Barbara Gepner of Leon, IA, and Nancy (Jim VanDenHout) Reynolds of Mount Ayr, IA; nieces, nephews, other relative and a host of friends.

We have good memories of Butch. We look forward to seeing him alive again in the resurrection. Jesus promised, "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." John 5:28, 29

Love Butch so much. He was always there to fix our bikes as kids. Even if he was working on the silver bullet, if you asked him to patch your tire, hed stop what he was doing and say let me go get my tools and patch your bike up. Never mattered who you were, hed help. Such a loving man.

I'm thinking of all of Butch's family. Butch was an animal lover so I know he had a good heart. Hugs.
