VST is sad to announce the recent passing of Rev. Ralph Butler. Along with his wife Wanda and his sister, Rev. Laura Butler, Ralph Butler made an historically significant endowment to Vancouver School of Theology last year, with the establishment of ‘The Reverend John Ralph Butler and Elisabeth Letitia Baker Butler Chair of Homiletics and Biblical Interpretation’. The endowment, in the amount of three million dollars, was made by the Butler family in memory of Ralph and Laura Butler’s parents, the Reverend John Ralph Butler and his wife Elisabeth Letitia Baker Butler.
We are grateful to God for the life and legacy of Ralph Butler, and extend our hands in condolence to his wife Wanda, and sister Laura, and to their families.
