Gerald Bush “Butch” Metcalf went home to be with the Lord on Friday, August 28, 2015, He always had a welcoming smile and never knew a stranger.
Butch was a commercial fisherman for most of his life and loved being on the water, he was also the epitome of a handyman. He so loved the Lord and his church family as a deacon at Seaside Chapel for many years with those very talents and a compassionate spirit.
He was a veteran of the United States Air Force, for which he was very proud.  His great pride and joy in life was his family, his beautiful bride of fifty years, Dianne, his three children, Robby Metcalf and wife Teresa, Jamie Metcalf and Laura, and Gina Evans and husband Starlin, and his grandchildren, Joseph, Rosalyn, Kody, Marie, Kirk, Joshua, Starlin, Jasmine, and Nadia, whom he always had a listening ear and word of advice for, and his sister, JoAnne Waldrop and husband Pete.  
There are no words to express how much he will be missed, however we take comfort knowing he is with our Lord and Savior and we rejoice in that.  
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 4 pm Monday, August 31, 2015, at Seaside Chapel.  Memorial gifts may be made to Seaside Chapel, P.O. Box 451, Carolina Beach, NC, 28428. Condolences to
the family at www.andrewsmortuary.com
