Henry, the son of Henry William and Sammie Olean Dubois
Prell, Jr., was born May 27, 1970, in Pineville, La. He passed away Sunday, Aug. 23, 2015.
Butch graduated from Evans High School in 1988. Kim and Butch married on July 23, 1993. He was a multi-faceted man, and he was currently employed
with Cymstar at Fort Polk. He was a patriotic man who instilled love, gratitude, and respect in his children for America and the brave individuals who serve in the armed forces. Butch was known by a vast amount of people for many different reasons.
The most memorable title that he wore was “Coach”. He coached t-ball, baseball, softball, and basketball for 19 years. He was the greatest inspiration to the young people that he worked with. He was an amazing coach and mentor to his children and all
of their friends. He was a die-hard fan of anything that his children did. He was always cheering each of them on and encouraging them to be great and kind on and off of the field or court. He was filled with love and compassion for every person that
he came in contact with. He showed the love of God to strangers and friends alike. He was the man that ALWAYS stopped on the side of the road to offer assistance. His sense of humor was unparallelled. If you knew Butch, you know that he was
constantly joking, pranking, and kidding around with someone. He was a man of God who showed his commitment to the Lord through the rough times. He was the best daddy to his three children, who will always love him with all of their hearts. Kim and
Butch truly loved one another so very deeply through twenty-two years of marriage. They were a team like no other. He always went above and beyond for this children and his wife. It is no question as to whether he will be missed; he will be missed
daily by so many until the glorious day when we are all able to meet up in the sky again with our Lord, Jesus Christ. One of Butch’s favorite scriptures was Matthew 25:40. “And the King will say, “I tell you the truth, when you did it to least of
these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me.” Dad always felt like he was the least in the kingdom, but to his wife, children, family, and friends, he is the greatest. Butch will live on through his children and wife. His skill and love of
electrical work will live on through his son-in-law, Kanon. His humor will live on through his son, Kevin. His intelligence, compassion, and “butchy-lips” will live on through his daughter, Taylor. His love for the game of softball, and his quick wit
will live on through his daughter, Tori. Lastly, his love for his family, his patient endurance, and his heart will live on through his wife, Kim. Butch was a carpenter, an electrician, a father, a coach, a comedian, a husband, a son, a brother, and
a friend, but most importantly, Butch will always and forever be the child of the Living and Almighty God! May we each be a shining beacon for the glory of God, Amen!
