Stewart M. Buttars will celebrate his 90th birthday in December 2018. A large family celebration of his life was held on November 3.
True to his motto of “work hard, play hard,” Stewart’s life has been one of hard work, community and church service, fun trips with his wife Lera and lots of adventures with family and friends.
Along with running his own farm, he managed the Weston Grain Coop elevator, served as Franklin county commissioner, as delegate for the Farmer’s Union, on the Soil Conservation board and as trustee on the West Side school board for many years. In 1976 he was named Progressive Farmer of the Year.
Always active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, he served as a missionary in the Central States during his early years, and then completed several service missions with his wife Lera during their retirement years.
Although his accomplishments are many and varied, possibly his greatest legacy is the heritage and lessons that he left to his six children and numerous posterity. Stewart is currently retired at the Pioneer Valley Lodge in North Logan.
We love you, Dad, and Wish you a happy 90th birthday!
