Oren "Butch" Julius McAdams, a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and a proud Veteran, 

passed away peacefully on February 16, 2024, in Riverton, Wyoming. The family invites friends and relatives to join in celebrating Butch's remarkable life on Friday 23rd of February graveside at Sacagawea cemetery at 11AM. Refreshments after are at the house, 15071 Hwy 287, Fort Washakie.



Born on March 5, 1932, in Fort Washakie, Wyoming, Butch was a proud and respected member of the Eastern Shoshone tribe and spent most of his life on the Wind River Reservation. His life was a testament to strength and commitment. He was also a respected member of the Elks Club.



Butch found his lifelong partner in Emma "Lucille" Calhoun , marrying her on April 14, 1953, in San Diego, California. Their union was blessed with sons Dale, Joseph, and Charles.



A man of honor and courage, Butch served his country as a Marine in the Korean War, a period that defined much of his strength and character. His career included distinguished service as a police officer, work in the oil fields, and a well-earned retirement from the Bureau of Land Management.



Butch’s passions included motorcycles, hunting, and fishing, hobbies that he passionately shared with his family and friends. His adventurous spirit and deep respect for nature were integral parts of his identity. Butch's life story is one of resilience and enduring connections. His absence leaves a void in the lives of those who knew him, but his spirit and memories will continue to inspire and comfort us.

The family deeply appreciates the support and condolences received during this time. 



Butch is proceeded in death by his sons Joseph and Charles, and mourning his loss are his wife, Lucille, his son, Dale, his grandchildren, Storm and Talon, and his great-grandchildren, whose presence brought him immense happiness and pride.
