Then the Lord replied: "Write down the
revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For
the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not
prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not
delay" Habakkuk 2:2-3
Anthony Butler was born in Detroit, Michigan
in 1968. Anthony was educated in Detroit Public Schools and went on to get a
Bachelor's Degree in Communications from the University of Detroit. After
suffering the loss of his mother in 1995, he felt God calling him to work in
the funeral home industry. Mr. Butler began to volunteer at Cantrell Funeral
Home a couple days a week.
In the fall of 1996 he went back to school and
obtained his degree and mortuary science license. Under the guidance of Raymond
E. Cantrell Sr. he grew from a volunteer to embalming and directing funerals.
In October 2010 with the blessings of Mr
Cantrell, Anthony Butler and his wife Charita stepped out on faith to open
Butler Funeral Home on Morang Drive.
