OLD ORCHARD BEACH — Gregory “Greg” LeRoy Butterfield, 68, passed away on Dec. 26, 2017 at Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford, Maine surrounded by family and friends. 

He was born on April 19, 1949 in Streator, Illinois, the son of Ralph and Delores Butterfield. The family moved to Tucson, Arizona where he graduated and started his own family. Shortly after he moved to Maine for the remainder of his life.

Greg worked at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for 16 years restoring naval ships and nuclear subs. He then went over the road and traveled to every state of the United States but three. He and his wife loved riding Harleys, one of their fondest memories was their trip to Sturgis, North Dakota. He loved music and had hopes of having his own rock band in his garage.
