October 17, 1948 - February 17, 2021
David Matthew Batten passed away peacefully at his home in Butte. Dave was born October 17, 1948 to David A. Batten and Velma J. Matosich Batten. Dave attended Butte schools including Greeley Elementary, East Junior High and graduated from Butte High School in 1967. After graduation he enlisted in the US ARMY. While in the ARMY he served two years in Vietnam and worked on oversized cargo trucks until his honorable discharge. He also received his apprenticeship from the Anaconda Company as a Heavy Duty Machinist in 1975. In the 70’s Dave was in a horrible automobile accident that left him that left him with health issues. He had odd jobs through his working years including, cleaning, working at restaurants, working for livestock companies and being a laborer. Dave is proceeded in death by his parents, David and Velma Batten, Sister Donna Batten Triniman and his brother Dennis Batten. His grandparents Matt and Mary Matosich and George and Avenel Batten and several aunts, uncles and cousins. His survivors include his nephew Tyler Triniman, his niece Tiffany Triniman Dixon and her spouse Josh Dixon and great niece Addyson Dixon along with numerous cousins. Dave was a little rough around the edges and those he opened up to loved him. We enjoyed his stories, humor and knew Dave was Dave. The family would like to thank the staff at The Ivy at Deer Lodge for his recent care. We would also like to thank those who have looked over him and checked in on him over the last couple years, including his neighbors, bar staff and old friends. In recent weeks he was where he wanted to be, at home where he was happy. Dave we know you were forever grateful, appreciative and thankful for family and Miller Lite and cigarettes. We are going to miss your stories, your humor and Addy will miss the roll of quarters. Rest easy and I know you will have a beer waiting for us. A gathering will take place at a later date.
