1927-2012

Retired District Judge Marvin Teddy “Ted” Butler passed away Monday, June 4, 2012, at the age of 84. He was born Sept. 12, 1927.

Judge Butler had a long and distinguished legal and political career that began in his hometown of Karnes City, Texas. He practiced law in Karnes County for a number of years with his partner, Judge John May.

Butler was elected Karnes County Attorney in 1952, winning the first of a long series of successful election campaigns. In 1958, Judge Butler was elected as Karnes County Judge, an office to which he was re-elected in 1962. In 1963, he accepted appointment as Assistant U.S. District Attorney and moved to San Antonio.

In 1969, he was appointed as the U.S. District Attorney for the Western District of Texas. Judge Butler was appointed by Gov. Preston Smith as the Criminal District Attorney of Bexar County in 1969, a position which he successfully retained in two contested elections. In 1977, he was appointed by Gov. Dolph Briscoe as Judge of the 226th District Court in Bexar County, an office he held until his retirement in 1988.

Judge Butler was a veteran of the U.S. Army and a graduate of Baylor University School of Law. He was a proud member of the Butler family that has been cattle ranching in Karnes County since 1850. He enjoyed tending to his cattle and hosting his family and friends at his Karnes County ranch. He was a devoted and loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and was a loyal and faithful friend to many people.

Judge Butler was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin and Hattie Butler; and his sister, Martha Butler.

He is survived by his children, Melinda Beckett and husband Lamont of Comfort, Richard Butler and wife Tina of Karnes City, and Julie Beck and husband August H. Beck III of San Antonio; his grandchildren, Clinton Butler, Dustin Butler, August Beck, and Annie Shuler; his great-grandchildren, Danny Butler, Ricky Butler, Isabella Butler, Gus Beck, Kierstyn Beck, Jim Shuler, and Ted Shuler; and his brother, William L. Butler and wife Betty. Judge Butler also is survived by nieces Sue Carter and Patricia Literati; and nephews William G. Butler and Robert L. Butler.

A memorial service was held in Rhodes Funeral Home in Karnes City on Saturday, June 9, at 11 a.m., followed by a brief graveside service in the Karnes City Cemetery.

The family requests memorial donations be made to Boysville in San Antonio (www.boysvilletexas.org), or to a charity of one’s choice.
