George M. Butko on July 7, 2020, age 82 of Munhall. 

Beloved husband of 59 years to Marlene (Samatovich) Butko; Loving father of George (Christine) Butko, Greg Butko and Chrissy (Mark) Hennicke; 

Cherished grandfather of Jacob, Jordan, Paige, Mitchell and Evan; 

Brother of Raymond Butko; survived by many cousins, nieces and nephews. 

George was a Veteran of the United States Army with years of service from 1961 to 1963.  While raising a family and working at Mesta Machine Company, he proudly earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Duquesne University in 1970 after years of attending night school. He was an avid reader and connoisseur of movies.  He always encouraged his children and grandchildren to read to the greatest extent possible.  He leaves with us that legacy.

Due to the COVID-19 Crisis and the CDC Guidelines the arrangements are private and entrusted to George Irvin Green Funeral Home, Inc. 3511 Main Street, Munhall, PA (412-461-6394).
