Perle Eldon Avery, Jr. “Butch” of Houston, Texas, formerly of Bourbon, was born Thursday, August 1, 1946 at St. Louis, Missouri to the union of Perle E. and Virginia Mildred (Nee: Harmon) Avery. He left from this life on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at Methodist West Houston Hospital, Houston, Texas at the age of 73 years.

Butch bowled for sixty-eight years and his all-time high score was 234. He spent hours doing work and taking care of his garden every spring and summer.

Those who are left to treasure his memory and to continue his legacy are his children, Mark Avery of Bourbon and Billie and husband John Schuler of Houston, Texas; six amazing grandchildren, Nicholas “Nick” and wife Tara Weber of Cuba, Ben Weber of Cuba, Ashley and husband Nick Mesger of Sullivan, Danielle Schuler of Houston, Texas, Kerri Schuler of Houston, Texas and Mikayla Avery of Cuba; great grandchildren, Jadelyn Weber, Hunter Weber, Gunner Weber, Chandler Weber, Christian Weber, Meredith Weber; one sister Claudia Dildine of St. Clair, Missouri; one brother Gene and wife Linda Avery of Leasburg, half-brother, Michael and wife Jeannie Hogan of Little Rock, Arkansas; step-brother Terry and wife Vicky Hogan of Boss, brothers-in-law Jerry Bryant of Steelville, Harry and wife Debbie Wells of South County, Missouri, Betty and husband Charles Speers of Bear, Delaware, Lonnie Morrison of Cuba; nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.

My heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

Billie, John, and girls,
I am so sorry to hear of Butch’s passing. I will miss visiting with him on Sunday mornings. He always had a hello and smile for me. What a nice man. I know he’ll be missed by many! May you feel God’s comforting arms around all of you.
