October 2nd, 1946 - January 2nd, 2020
Norman Eugene "Butch" Earhart, age 73 of Trenton, passed away at Garden Manor Extended Care on Thursday, January 2, 2020. Butch was born in Hamilton, Ohio on October 2, 1946 to Marion Chalmer Earhart and Margaret Pierce Earhart. Butch married the love of his life, Sherry Davis Earhart on July 15, 1967. Butch really enjoyed the 30’s thru 60’s model cars. Butch opened "Butch’s Car Corral" in 1987. After open-heart surgery, he moved his car business to his home in Trenton in 1993. From 1998, Butch drove dump trucks until retiring. He loved to hang out with his friends at Wayne’s Garage in Lindenwald. Butch loved Wheelin’ and Dealin’, car cruise-ins and riding with his motorcycle buds. On December 29, 2012, Butch suffered a right brain stroke and his life changed forever. If he could, he would tell you this: "If you ever get pain in your arm or legs with no reason, get to the hospital fast, you could be having a stroke." Butch was concerned for his friends because he loves them so much and he hopes to see them all in Heaven someday.
Butch is survived by his wife, Sherry E. Earhart of 53 years; Casey Rae, his boxer; sister, Beverly Bowman; and several nieces and nephews. Butch was preceded in death by his parents, Marion Chalmer Earhart and Margaret (Earhart) Walls and brother, Jerry Earhart.
