Passing of John “Butch” Purcell

It is with deep sadness we are writing to let you know that John ” Butch” Purcell passed away very suddenly Monday night at home.   Butch was with his wife Mary.  Their son John is now with Mary as they both grieve this sudden, tragic loss.

Butch was 74. He was a good, decent man with a beautiful soul. His loss is felt by us all.  A service is being planned. The family requests no flowers but will be deciding on a place for donations. 

Some stories about Butch’s life

Playground Dedication on September 2019

Town and Village – Playground number 9 named after “Butch” Purcell

Town and Village- In the Name of Butch

His name is John Purcell. To his legion of friends he is simply known as “Butch.” He has been a resident of Stuyvesant Town for over five decades. ……

…..Butch has spent his adult life helping young people. He has devoted much of his time keeping kids away from drugs and other self-destructive behaviors. When he has encountered those who have already gone down that poisoned path, he has shown them an off ramp….

At a time when smart and unselfish leadership in our nation and community is in short supply, we look for persons who lead not for personal profit or power but to do good. John Butch Purcell did very good.

Endorsement Correction

Correction to our last note.

At our last meeting we voted to endorse our own Michelle Winfield for State Committeewoman along with a few incumbents who have let the club know they intend for running for re-election. However at the time of the meeting, the male state committee incumbent had not declared he was running for re-election and the endorsement of his seat was deferred to a later meeting, along with some of the other seats.

We apologize for any confusion, and thank our committed members who pointed out the inconstancy.

Happy Thanksgiving, and we look forward to seeing you at the Holidays for Hope event and in the new year.

State Committee Endorsements and Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Tildenites,

We are delighted to endorse our own Michelle Winfield for State Committeewoman as well as Michael Farrin for State Committeeman for the 2020 primary!
