Lorin Daniel Butler

Lorin Daniel Butler, 74, of Evans, Georgia went to be with the Lord on July 20, 2022, with his beloved wife of 50 years, Sharon, at his side.

Dan was born on June 13, 1948, to Lorin B. Butler and Genenia Marion Butler in Savannah, Georgia. He graduated from Jenkins High School in 1966 and then attended Armstrong State College and graduated with a B.A. in English in 1970. In August of 1972, Dan and Sharon married and moved to Macon, GA where Dan continued his pursuit of a law degree and graduated from Mercer University with his J.D. in 1973. In 1974 he was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia, The U.S. District Court, Southern District of Georgia, and the Georgia Supreme Court.

After graduating from law school, he was employed as an Assistant District Attorney in Savannah, GA. In March of 1974 Dan and Sharon moved to Augusta, GA and he joined the law practice of Terry Leiden. Eventually he opened a private practice specializing in family law with an emphasis on national and international custody and adoption. He was a member of The Family Law Section of the State Bar of Georgia and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

His greatest joy in life was taking care of his family and of others, especially children. He served on the initial Board of Directors for the Ronald McDonald House on Greene Street and was on the board of Care Pregnancy Center for many years. He was a devoted Christian and an active member of Wesley United Methodist Church. In 2013, he reluctantly retired from the practice of law. He then enjoyed spending more time with his family and pursuing various hobbies.

He is predeceased by his parents Lorin and Marion and his nephews Blaine and Brandon. He is survived by his wife Sharon, his daughters Cheryl Skinner [Matt] and Elizabeth Butler, his grandchildren Maya Leigh and Gage Patrick, his brother Dennis Butler [Kim], his nieces Ashley Watson [Bryan] and Olivia Copeland [Blake], and several great-neices and nephews.

Visitation will be at Thomas Poteet & Son Funeral Directors at 214 Davis Road, Augusta, GA 30907 at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 25, 2022, with the funeral service immediately following at 11 a.m.
