Obituary for James Lloyd Sauls

James Lloyd "Butch" Sauls, 58, of Seneca, took his last bow on the earthly stage on August 4, 2020.

Born on October 20, 1961, in South Charleston, WV, Butch was the son of James "Bird" & Betty Sauls. He was a 1979 graduate of Hillcrest High School, where he was the band captain and head trumpet player. Butch became a brilliant musician and went on to play in many bands from the Nitro Express and Osmosis in the 70's and 80's to Thin Men, N2U and Beat the Clock in the 90's and 00's. Butch was an amazing performer and seasoned chef. Butch had previously been a chef at the Garden House Assisted Living in Anderson. His most recent employment was at Oconee Point Campground on Lake Hartwell. Butch loved to fish and his Clemson Tigers. He loved his family, both blood and chosen. Butch will be missed by all who knew him. The Heavenly band has a new member, and he is ready for his solo.

Butch is survived by his parents, James "Bird" and Betty Sauls of Fountain Inn, SC, three sons, William "Grant" Sauls of St. Joseph, MO; Max Sauls, and Gage Sauls of Anderson; a daughter, Gabrielle "Gabbie" Sauls, and a stepdaughter, "Maddie" Avery Altman, both of Anderson, SC; two sisters, Darla Moseley (Fred) of Longs, SC, and Jamie Ponder (Jeff) of Fountain Inn, SC; and three grandsons, Elijah Wade Williams, Zayne Sauls, and Draiden Tre Sauls. He had many special nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 14, 2020, at 2:00pm at Salem United Methodist Church at 2700 White Horse Road in Greenville. The family respectfully requests those attending the service to please wear masks and social distance.

No words are available to express my deepest sympathy to his mom and dad. Who raised a handsome, very talented son. Teaching him to give love! One of the first phrases I heard from him, 8 years ago when you introduced us Betty. I am forever grateful for that day. Sweet memories of finally meeting you in person. I wish I could be there for you and Bird in your endless grief of burying your son. Same way you were both there for me during Ric's surgery and his passing. Butch said he felt close to Ric driving the truck. I would like to believe they are sharing stories as they reel in the next big fish. For they both walked with God in their life. We all have a angel watching over us. Butch loved you both so much. His children were his life! Your dad was so proud of your talents and achievements. Naturally, you all got his good looks. He was quick to brag of each of you. He would not want to see your tears. For he would feel so sad to think he was the cause of sadness. Instead give love to those that surround you and talk to him often.

We met Butch at Twin Lakes Campground several years ago.We live in Candler N. C. and usually made a few trips down each year to camp. Butch always made the trip very worth while. He was so friendly and knowable.It felt like our family was welcoming us. He will be very missed.
