Guy Douglas Button, of Vermillion, SD finished life’s 18 holes and headed to heaven’s 19th hole Sunday, September 15th 2019 after a long battle with cancer.
Guy was born March 9 1959, in Des Moines, IA to Donald and Joyce (Seney) Button. He joined his older brother Mark, and after the arrival of his younger brother Randy they got into loads of trouble growing. Their mother always said if you saw them in pictures you could tell them apart by food on Randy's face or a bruise on Guy. Guy and Randy were inseparable. Guy attended Abraham Lincoln High School in Des Moines where he was clearly the inspiration for Farrah Fawcett's famous hair. After high school he worked doing print setting for the newspaper and enjoyed hobby photography, including wedding photography.
Guy loved to golf and spent many of his birthdays travelling all over the country playing new courses. He also loved "good movies" & classic rock. You always knew Guy would be looking for company for upcoming concerts or a new movie. He had a deep love for his family only rivaled by his feelings for Da Bears.
He is survived by 2 brothers, Mark (Janet) Button of Lexington, SC and Randy Button of Yankton, SD; a sister, Lorie (Rick) Button of Sioux Falls; 4 nieces, Valerie-June Button of Rockville, MD; Tai (Courtney) Button; Dusty (Josh) Morrill; Monique Button all of Sioux Falls, SD; 7 Great nephews, Joseph, & Raygen Morrill; Joshua, & Koda Popkes; Logan & Derek Wiemann; Luciano Button; and 1 great niece Regan Wiemann; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends whom all hold warm memories of him.
Guy was preceded in death by his parents, Donald Button & Joyce Seney; Brother, Douglas Button; Grandparents, Albert and Lela Seney; Aunt, Betty GoBell; Uncle David Seney; Niece Crystal Button; & Cousin, Dustin Seney.
Please join his family at Kober Funeral home 402 East Main Street Vermillion, SD 57069 on Wednesday September 18th 2019 for visitation at 10:30 & service at 11:30 with burial to immediately follow at Calvary cemetery in Vermillion.
Though he is gone, Guy didn't give up. He didn't even know how, maybe his body did, but his will and spirit did not! When you miss him, look for Guy in the evening sunset, the earliest spring flowers or amongst the flitting and fluttering butterflies. You know he'll be there in one form or another.
Of course that will comfort some while probably antagonizing others, but you know Guy…
