Dakota Cheynne Butler passed away on September 29, 2021, in Jacksonville, Texas, at the age of 29. He was born in Nacogdoches, Texas, on June 29, 1992, to Wayne Butler and Teresa Butler.
Dakota was raised in Carthage with his brother whom he stayed close with throughout his life. He attended Garrison High School but decided to get his GED which he was very proud of. Dakota was a hard worker who loved his job as a painter and was known as a “go-getter” who would do whatever he was asked and made sure it was done to the best of his ability.
Dakota loved life and was loved by many. Though he lived for only 29 short years, he had the honor of being called a father to four beautiful children, who will forever miss their father. When Dakota wasn’t spending time with his family, he was spending time in nature, hunting and fishing. He also loved to ride back roads with his friends, listening to music and having the time of his life. To his friends and family, Dakota was known as “Hammer-Head”. When Dakota was just a teenager, he professed his faith to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
