Obituary for Carl Rudolph Butler

A brilliant star has vanished and our world is dimmer for it. Carl R. Butler, 56, left us suddenly, struck down by a heart attack while on the Burkittsville Historic House and Garden Tour, on Saturday, May 19, 2018.

Carl was born in Orleans, France to Randolph and Madeleine Butler. He was preceded in death by his grandparents and his father. He leaves to cherish his memory, his mother, Madeleine of Burkittsville, MD, his brother, Gary Scott (Dorothy) of Thurmont,MD, his sisters, Leslie Del Rosario (Hermel) of Lakeland, FL, Kathy Butler of Burkittsville, MD, Lorraine Slater (Robert) of Fort Worth, TX, Annette Butler of Leesburg, VA and a number of nieces, nephews and friends.

Carl was a dedicated member of his second family, the Ceresville Mansion Team. He was a talented artist who participated in the Gifted and Talented Program while at Brunswick High School. After graduation, he attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. He also studied with gifted artist, Mary Pfister. In 1996, Carl depicted African American Men working on the railroad on a 5’ X 7’ canvas that was the focal point of an exhibit on the third floor of the Brunswick Heritage Museum. In 2004, he participated in a Contemporary African American artists Art Show at the Delaplaine Center. He was also guest artist on the Frederick Garden Tour for several years. Carl was First Runner Up in the Frederick Magazine Contest for his rendition of the Ceresville Mansion Pergola and water lilies. In 2016, he was commissioned to paint the Hope Mural by the Frederick Asbury United Methodist Church with artist, Warren Davis, on W. All Saints and Ice Street. Carl’s love for the outdoors shines through in his landscapes and skies. He often hid spiritual messages in his works and was known for his trademark signature, a Smiley Face with halo. His generous and caring nature endeared him to many, he enjoyed promoting people and events on the internet and had many Facebook friends.

We will be celebrating his life at an event that will be announced at a later date. The family would like to thank the Burkittsville Community, especially Mayor Debbie Burgoyne, neighbors and friends for their unwavering support. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the John T. Williams Funeral Home, Brunswick, MD.
