Obituary for Scott Mclean Butler

Butler, Scott McLean

Scott passed away on May 6th at Freeport Hospital at the age of 67.

He will be deeply missed by his beloved wife and life partner Nancy.

He was a wonderful dad to Melissa MacMillan (Brian), Kristina Butler (Ben), James Butler (Taylor), Adam Clair (Julie) and Beckie Clair (Jason).

He was a terrific brother to Janis Butler (Walter), Debbie Planz (Roger) and Leslie Butler (Alan). He was a loving grandfather to Aidan, Lilah, Sam, Hannah, Beckett and Teddy. Many nieces and nephews will remember him as their fun and upbeat uncle.

Scott was a dentist for 37 years in Kitchener-Waterloo. He had a knack for building and fixing just about anything, and was the person family and friends always called for help. Along with his lifelong friends in Amatol, scott spent several weekends every year volunteering at YMCA camps: Belwood, Wabanaki, Ki-Wa-Y & John Island. There were so many reasons to love and admire Scott. He loved to tell a joke, and always was a good and loyal friend. He was an organizer, a doer, a giver and a mentor. His wonderful and well-lived life enriched the lives of those who knew him. Every family has someone who holds it together, and Scott was that person in ours. He will be fondly remembered by those who knew him.

Scott's family will receive relatives and friends from 2:00-4:00 & 6:00-8:00pm on Tuesday, May 9th, 2023 at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener, 519-749-8467. A Celebration of Life will be held in the funeral home chapel on Wednesday, May 10th, 2023 at 10:30am. Reception to follow - all are welcome.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to the YMCA of Three Rivers Waterloo Region or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).
