Precious Moments founder Sam Butcher dead at 85

(From Precious Moments)

It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Precious Moments beloved founder, Sam Butcher, who was called home to God in the early morning hours today, surrounded by loved ones. 

In his final words he shared that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were with him, and that it was beautiful.

Although the sorrow is great, it is our prayer that the appreciation and celebration of his legacy be even greater – the legacy of his glory-filled life, the countless blessings he bestowed upon the millions of lives he touched, and the incredible fulfillment of his life’s mission: to share God’s gift of love with the world.

The Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage was completed in 1989 and featured paintings by Sam Butcher, with the Samuel J. Butcher Museum, formerly The Gallery, the gift sthop, visitors center and chapel remaining open.
