Former Marion Mayor Bob Butler died Monday, April 22, 2019.
Butler, who served as Mayor of Marion for more than 50 years, retired in 2018 for health reasons. The city announced his death Monday morning.
“Anyone who met Bob knows what a great and caring man he was, and words cannot begin to express what a loss this is for our community. He was a good friend of mine, who served as a mentor during my career. I will miss him deeply. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this sad time," State Senator Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) said.
