Eugene Bartholow

Eugene Jesse Bartholow, also known by many as Butch, passed away Friday (Aug. 10, 2012) in Kingston, Tenn. He had been in poor health for the last several years and his death was not unexpected.

He was born June 28, 1947 in Fairmont, the only child of Annabelle Christy Bartholow and Eugene Bartholow. His grandparents were Jesse and Elizabeth Christy and John and Ruby Bartholow. Both his parents and grandparents are deceased.

Butch grew up mostly in the Greentown area of Rivesville and spent a lot of time with his grandparents in the Parker Run area north of Rivesville. He loved to roam the hills and go swimming in the creek with his uncles, cousins and friends.

He was fun-loving and easy to laugh. He remained like that most of his adult life. He was well liked and had many good friends and he would help anyone he could.

Butch spent many years as a truck driver, both long- and short-hauling. For a time he owned his own rig and drove independently. He tried the coal mines, but it wasn’t to his liking.

He could fix about anything that had an engine. He credited his dad and Grandpa Christy with teaching him.

Butch proudly served his country with the U.S. Army in Vietnam.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia; and stepchildren, Tammy and Robert Rosado, Anita Edmunds and Steven Wix. He never considered them as stepchildren and never referred to them as stepchildren. He also has a son, J.J. Bartholow, who lives in California. He also has six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

He was especially close with Steven and was proud as to how much Steven helped him when he became unable to do anything.

Other survivors are Geneveve Laboda and Jeston, Jon and Cecil Christy, along with many cousins and friends.

Butch will be missed.

In keeping with his wishes, he has been cremated. He wanted his ashes to be buried on a certain hill in Parker Run. This will be done at a later date.
