STOWE --- The funeral for Howard A. Butts was held Tuesday afternoon at the home of his son, Harry C. Butts, in Elmore, where he died at an early hour Sunday morning. The three sons, Harry C., Leon S., and Dwight M., and a grandson, Clyde, acted as bearers, and the Rev George F. Fuller of Morrisville conducted the service. The body was brought to Stowe, and the burial was made at the River Bank Cemetery.
