Orlando "Cleborne Barthlett affectionately known as "Butchie"
or "Third World" was bor on September 30, 1960 to Janet Wesselhoft
"Crooke" Myers and Rolando Barthlett.
.Butchie was born on the Island ofSt. Thomas and grew up in Paul
M. Pearson Garden/the Ghettoes.
While growing up he attended the Lockhart Elementary School,
then moved on to Wayne Aspinal now known as Adellita Cancryan Junior
High School, he then moved on to the Charlotte Amalie High School.
Butchie loved to play basketball. He played with the Ghettoe
Brothers and was one of the best on the team. If Butchie had pursued a
career as a professional basketball player he probably would have been
another Great Virgin Islands Basketball star a belief which he held
close to himself.
There's not much that can be said about Butchie's childhoodfor
it was cut short at age "16" The suppose to be sweet "16" was not to
sweet to Butchie. At this age Butchie suffered a mental breakdown that
troubled him for the reminder ofhi life. He was never himselfagain.
Butchie suffered for 22 years, but during those years he never lost
that million dollar smile. He kept it with him to the end Beneath his
illness lied the sweet, loving, numerous person that we all knew
Butchie was also a lover of Music. The late Robert Nester
Marley, who like butchie had touch so many lives, was his true idol.
Let us all not be sad.because of his passing for on earth we were
not meant to stay. It was God's way ofsaying "you have suffered enough
- it is now time to come home. Consequently, On July 3, 1999 Butchie
went to a better place to rest.
Let us fill our hearts with Joy knowing that Butchie is no longer
suffering, and let us trust in the Almighty God and realize that he knows
best. Rejoice and feel the love and joy that Butchie now feels.

"In my Father's house are many mansion; if it were not so, I
would have told you. Igo to prepare a placeforyou John 14 v2

good and bad times we spent together. The moments we shared will be forever in
our memories. You are gone but not forgotten Rest In Peace my son

Your Father Rolando Barthlett

Orlando Butchie Barthlen,
You were a special grandson, nephew, cousin and friend to us. You

grace of God. Butchie your jokes and laughter will be missed dearly by us but we

We are going to miss you dearly especially your laughter and dancing
when you were in good spirit. But we have also watched you suffer for so many
years and the Good Lord has decided that you must suffer no more and come home
to him to have peace and no more pain. So Butchic give the Lord a little assistance
and help him watch over your family because the struggle continues with us. Rest
In Peace my brother and uncle.
Your loving "Sis" Celina M. Banrthlett and family-

Your sister Cindylou Barthlett Monsanto

To my Brother Butchie:
It was a sad day when you took ill. I will always remember the kind,
considerate, helpful and generous brother you were. You made us laugh which was

were going through. Butchie, my beloved brother rest in peace and may God Bless
you and keep you safe and secure under his wings of love.
Love always you sister Nidy (AKA Neeyea to Butchie).

Butchie, you will truly be missed. We love you very much and we will
continue to love you and keep you in our hearts and mind. Remembering all the fun
things you've said and done that made us laugh.
You are now at peace, feeling no more pain. There's a wonderful promise
Jehovah God made in his word the Bible at Revelation 21 verses 3 and 4: "With that
I heard a loud voice from the throne say: Look! The tent of God is with mankind,
and he will reside with them and they will be his people. And God himselfwill be
with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no
more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things
have passed away."

ephcw Tre' and his dad Fox (Eustace), your great nieces Ashanti, Quasia,
Alexia and your great nephew Jaquan. We will always love you!

Though I may be sorry to see you go I am feeling light-hearted to know
that your burden has been lifted. You have suffered long and hard, I will remember
you smile and the way you made us laugh, (Butchy Two) our comedian and the
dancer. I will always miss your telephone calls to check on my family. My brother
lord has his plans for you even though we couldn't see it you were here to show us
how to care. Rest in peace.
Your Sister Cessy & Glen

In the land of fadeless days there will be no more sorrow, there will be no
more pain. Butchie god said my son you have suffer long enough come home and

Everyone who knew Orlando Clebom Banhlcn can rightfully point to him
as a human being who could provide an example on how to handle life's adversities.
As a teenager he suffered a debilitating illness, yet, despite this, he emerged a young
man full of humor, an individual who was invariably kind, rarely demonstrating
signs of pain or physical hardship. These qualities obviously had a strong effect on
young members of his family, as indicated to me personally through one who served
in my office as a young student-intern. Thus, though Orlando's Life was unfortu-
nately short, still, in that limited lime, he left his mark in a most endearing way. He
surely merits our kind memories and I offer my prayers that his soul may rest in
peace and my condolences to his bereaving family.

Senator Lorraine L. Berry

We never had the time to say goodbye, even though your not here with us anymore
we are glad that you wouldn't have to suffer no more. God knows best and he has
cased you pain. We feel better knowing that at last you will be your brother BOB
and he can finally hear your song. Rest In Peace.
Your nieces and nephew: Trisha, Tynell, Tiffani, Monet,
Shakir, and your great nephew Tremoi

Uncle Butchie,
I could remember you for almost nine year of my life. I would have like
to laugh with you and do more nicely things, but I guess it was time for a closer
walk with thee so let it be until we meet again.
Your loving niece Kiannic (Kiki) Banrhlet

Knowing Bulchie was a pleasure for anyone who knew him. Butchie was someone
who could make a cloud into a star, someone who could always make you laugh no
matter what the circumstances were.
Bro you will be truly missed for your welcoming smile, and your humor toward
life. We will all miss you and forever hold you in our hearts. Until we meet again,
Rest In Peace with all our blessings.
Your Sis Vedia, nieces and nephew Kiannie,Kwanique
And Kwane Jr. (K.J)

Although you may not be with us in the physical form anymore, there's no need to

come. Thejoy that you brought us in life, ill continue to fuel our thoughts ofyou.
So until we meet again, much love andrest peacefully.
Your cousins: Richard, Lucia, Frankie, Mikie,
Amazia, Dean...and your entircfamily."

Uncle Butchie,
People said you were mentally ill, but to us you were perfectlyJnprmal.
Everytime we were around you
You always'make us laugh. For the short time that we've known you,
we've loved you very much, we'll miss you. Rest in peace

Your nieces and nephews, Latoya,
Linnai, Eladio, Elijah And Lennysha

Brother inlaw.
You surprise me with your passing. You told me you were a conquering
lion and you'll live on forever, now I know what you meant, you're now living in a
better place, but guess what? I'll always be your personal barber. Enjoy your new
life. Rest in peace bro, rest in peace

Your Brother inlaw Lenny Monsanto Jr.

To Uncle Butchic:
Because ofthe fact that we didn't grow up around you we were unable to
get know much about you. For the little time that we spent with you, you always
made us laugh. Uncle Butchic you will always be loved and remembered. God be
with you.
Love always your nieces and nephew: Natara, Alva (JR) & Nicki.
