Tom Butler, a true visionary of our industry has passed away after a battle with cancer. Butler had over 50 years’ experience in the floral business with 30 of those at Teleflora and American Floral Services. He was considered not only an industry leader, but a close friend with many florists across the United States. Butler was often called, “Chief Champion of Florists,” because was always there when needed and possessed a deep understanding of the local florists’ issue and concerns.
The Beneva Solutions family would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to Tom’s family and friends during this time of loss and beyond. Tom will be remembered as a kind man who was generous with his knowledge and time. His contribution to the floral industry is priceless. His lessons will be felt by many generations to come.
