A Butler native, resident and businessman known for his personal touch died Wednesday.

Michael Monday, 60, of Butler, co-owner of the former Monday’s Shoes, died after a short illness.

“He is going to be greatly missed,” said family friend Sandy Protzman-Cook. “There’s not going to be anybody else to fill his shoes. He was amazing.”

A 1979 graduate of Butler High School, Monday owned the third-generation shoe company with his cousin Henry Monday.

The pair retired in December, closing the 110-year-old downtown storefront, but many people have fond memories of their patronage.
