Dr. Ambrous “Butch” Oliver Findley Jr. passed away peacefully on October 6, 2023, with his loving wife Wanda and loyal boxer Maddie by his side.
Butch is preceded in death by his parents, Ambrous Oliver Findley Sr. and Jessie Ruth Harris, sister Jayme G. Strickland, brother-in-law Spencer Murphy, and nephew Richard “Dicky” Strickland.
Butch attended the University of South Florida and obtained a B.A. in Psychology. After graduation, he joined the U.S. Navy and served as a Hospital Corpsman. Butch later returned to the University of South Florida and obtained a B.A. in Biology and Pre-Med. He then attended the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency at the Metropolitan General Hospital in Pinellas Park, FL. After completing medical school and his residency, Butch joined the U.S. Army and served as Physician with the rank of Captain at Fort Stewart.
Butch was a beloved physician in Rabun County who served the community for forty-two years, first at Ridgecrest Hospital, and later joined the team at MedLink Rabun. His career was truly a fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Butch also delighted in spending time with his family and friends, whether those experiences involved new adventures or the comforts of home. He enjoyed good food, a great book, and loved opportunities to help others-both people and animals. Dr. “Butch” Findley will be deeply missed until our eternal, Heavenly reunion.
He is survived by his loving wife, Wanda Scaggs Findley, of Clayton, GA; four children, Emily Findley of Portland, OR; Ben Findley (Jenna) of Clayton, GA; Christie Vollmer (David) of Pelzer, SC; and Craig Anderson of Jacksonville, FL; his sister Emma R Murphy of Valrico, FL; Grandchildren Gracie Tucker, Lillie Vollmer, and Brian Vollmer; three nephews Tim Strickland, Albert “Ab” Strickland, and Bill Murphy.
