Norman Glendon Crary
Mar 5, 1931 - Mar 23, 2016
On the evening of March 23rd, 2016 Norman “Butch” Glendon Crary passed away peacefully in his Sacramento home. Butch had recently celebrated his 85th birthday. He was born and raised in Sacramento.
Butch wouldn’t want a formal obituary, but would want everyone to know that he raised five children that he adored, fought hard in life, and lasted longer than anyone thought he would. He was a gruff man with the kindest heart you could imagine. He was always there to offer a helping hand to those in need and to give you a stern talking to if that’s what he thought you needed.
He was preceded in death by most of his siblings but is survived by his sister, Alma Madsen. He was preceded in death by his son, Donald Crary and survived by his sons, Dale and Vernon Crary as well as his daughters, Deborah Sommer and Autumn Crary.
Butch will be buried at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery with honors on April 1st, 2016. The family will hold a memorial at one of the family homes afterward. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like information to attend.
