Daedrian Eric Butler, an 11 year old young man, born on June 2, 2005 in El Paso, Texas, currently residing in Richmond, Texas, was granted his angel wings on May 11, 2017, at 10:32 A.M. CST following an unexpected Seizure preceded by Multiple Cardiac Arrests that began at Wertheimer Middle School on May 1,2017 and continued upon his arrival to Texas Children's Hospital, Medical Center, Houston, Texas. His final days were spent surrounded by his loving family and his closest of friends.

Daedrian's life would seem too short to many, especially his family, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His gentle heart, kind "Old Soul", and loving touch, with his side cracked smile continues to melt the hearts of those who knew him and even those who never met Daedrian a day in their lives. His voice, intelligent words, funny, yet dry jokes and thoughts could always be heard, and will remain imprinted in the hearts of those who knew and loved him best. Although Daedrian had no history of Seizures, and his illness came on unknowingly and unexpectedly, he remained "Our Hero and Our Warrior," as he never stopped fighting and fought all the way through until he took his last and final breath. Daedrian possessed the kindest of hearts, thoughtfulness, intelligence beyond measure, respectfulness, sensitivity, strength, perseverance, and an ability to overcome incredible odds. He came into the world fighting for his life and sadly left the world fighting for his life. With his courage he led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories.

Daedrian leaves behind his his Father, Broderick S. Butler, Mother and Father, Jessica and James Simon, Sister, Jalissa A Martinez, and brother Jarvis Butler. Loving Grandparents, Leticia G. Akposheri and Andres Martinez, Willie P. Akposheri, Mary Helen Butler, Savannah and Ernest Spann, and James and Kami Simon, loving Aunties and Uncles, Utude Akposheri, whom he loved like a mother, Melissa Griego, Sutina Harrington and several aunts and uncles in North and South Carolina. It would be remiss if Michael Perez, whom Daedrian not only loved as a big brother and best-friend, but admired and looked up to, was not specifically and individually mentioned. Daedrian was a "Griego," which to those that know the Griego family, they know that means that he was blessed to be a part of a family of over 47 loving cousins, that loved him and will always love him dearly. He had several uncles and aunts that helped raise and mold him into the young man he was. He will be forever remembered by his small circle of best-friends from Richmond and Katy, Texas, Konnor, Jomar, Matthew, Charles, Dorian, Jonah, Ivan, Mario, Jamarion, Adrian, Shane, AJ, Avery, and many, many other very close and special friends from both Katy and Richmond. There are far many more special people, too numerous to mention, that loved Daedrian and provided him with love and dignity throughout his life and also in his death. He was loved by many, but Daedrian was his own kind of unique person, and very different in his frame of thinking compared to most 11 year old boys his age. He suffered from bullying throughout his school years and for that reason alone, it is important to mention that Daedrian was big on changing the world for the better, where bullying didn't exist and people were no longer mean and didn't bully one another. He was a lover of all things created by God, from animals to plants, and in general Daedrian LOVED LIFE. Daedrian, without question, has touched so many lives in some small way throughout his short, yet very memorable life. Our lives have and will be forever changed and only for the best, as we were blessed to have Daedrian Eric Butler in them. He will forever be loved and missed.
