1948 ~ 2021


Colin Arthur Butterfield passed away at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Monday, November 29, 2021, at the age of 72 years. Colin’s memory will live on in the hearts of his three children: Michelle (Ryan) Robinson and their daughter, Kayla; Scott (Denise) Butterfield and their children, Clara and Rayne; Randy (Karla) Butterfield and their children, Brea and Brady and the mother of his children, Sheila (Don) McLennan. He will also be remembered by his siblings, Hazel (Terry) McMillan, Beverly Sample, Bob Butterfield, Don (Marion) Butterfield and Valerie Butterfield as well as his second family at the Redi Group Home, Gord, Maryanne, Perry, Linda and Nathan and the loving caregivers throughout the years. Colin was predeceased by his parents, George and Mabel Butterfield. Colin grew up in MacGregor, MB., and later moved to Thompson, MB., where he raised his three children and worked at Inco. In 1986, Colin suffered a brain aneurysm that would forever change his life. He moved to the 12th Street Group Home in Medicine Hat where he remained for more than 30 years. His favourite pastimes included playing crib, watching movies and going to Tiger games, but he especially loved watching his grandchildren play their sports.
