Mount Carmel – Boyd “Butch” Eugene Lahr, Jr., 40, of 8 South Peach Street, passed away Saturday, September 19, 2020 in his home.
Born in Lewisburg on August 17, 1980, he was the son of Boyd Eugene Lahr, Sr., and Patricia (Gallagher) Miller. Butch was a 1999 graduate of Shamokin Area High School. He was a member of APA Pool League, 8-9 Ball, and A-Member of East End Fire Company. He loved football (go Eagles!), spending time with his family and friends and making us all laugh.
Butch was hilarious, and warm, and compassionate, and resilient. He could and would talk to anyone and his quick wit and charm made him easy to talk to. He was adored as a loyal son, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend.
Butch is survived by his mother, Patricia Miller and her husband, James of Mount Carmel; father, Boyd Eugene Lahr, Sr. and his wife, Nancy of Trevorton; four brothers, David Dehoutaint, Jr. of Mount Carmel, Shane Lahr and his wife, Bethany of Trevorton, Drew Lahr of Marion Heights, and Bryan Lahr of Trevorton; three sisters, Chastity Fabrizio and her wife, Noelle of Collegeville, Felina Robbins of Mount Carmel, and Tisha Laise and her husband, Bobby of Trevorton; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Thomas Sr., and Mary (Kurtz) Gallagher; paternal grandparents, William Sr., and Alice (Moroz) Lahr; and two brothers, Shaun Lahr and Aaron Lahr.
Among those who knew Butch best, he is remembered most for his willingness to do anything for anyone and the way he always lit up the room with his goofy sense of humor. We would give anything to feel one of his big amazing hugs, hear him say his never ending “love yas” as we parted ways or hear him crack an inappropriate joke once again. He has left behind more loving family members and friends than could ever be captured here and our grief over losing him is infinite. And now so is he.
