Leslie “Butch” Scott was born on September 29, 1948 in South Philadelphia, PA to the late Leslie Scott Sr. and Annie Green Scott. Butch Scott was the 8th child of 10 siblings. 4 siblings preceded him in death, Joseph, Herbert, Elizabeth, and William.

Butch moved to Williamstown, NJ as a small child and was educated in the Monroe Township School District and then enlisted in the United States Army in 1966 at the age of 17, where he fought in the Vietnam War. Butch received the National Defense Service Medal, National Vietnam Campagn Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and also the Soldier’s Medal for saving another soldier’s life during combat. He was honorably discharged in 1969.

Butch met Edna Robinson in 1969 and later married in 1970. Together they had 5 children.

He worked at various jobs before he started his career at Johns Manville in 1976 as a Machine Operator, in Berlin, NJ. Butch also had a roofing business while still employed at John’s Mansville. He retired from John’s Mansville in 2004, began a barbeque business soley, then joined with Edna and long time friend Ronald Austin later the following year called S&A Barbeque until 2016.

He joined Community Bible Fellowship Church in 2000 and was baptized in the name of Jesus by Rev. Gordon R. Parks Sr. He was a member and later served under Bishop Ernest Wallace Sr. where he became a walking Deacon in 2015. Deacon Butch was a faithful member until his health declined which prevented him to attend the way he desired.

All that knew Butch knew he loved to sing, attend billiards, hunt, fish, travel, and was known as a master of all trades because he could fix anything. His main hobbies were shooting pool and barbequing where he was known all over the Tri State Area. His ability to cook landed him in a cooking competition where he earned a 2nd place award. That special sauce will never be discovered.

Butch leaves to cherish his legacy: his wife Edna, three daughters: Leona, Nancy, and Angela (Birgit); two sons: Clarence (Drea) and Leslie III, seven grandchildren; four great grandchildren; two sisters: Ruth Hamm (William)-Fayetville, NC and Mary Scott- Sicklerville, NJ; Four brothers: David-Maple Shade, NJ, Jessie (Lois)-Williamstown, NJ, Abraham (Jackie)-Pine Hill, NJ, and Richard (Brenda)-Sicklerville, NJ. Two Aunts: Rose and Corrine and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends and very best friend Ronald Austin in Williamstown, NJ.





Don’t Grieve For Me Now I’m Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God has chosen for me. I took His hand when I heard him call; I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way; I've now found peace at the end of the day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss; Oh yes, these things, I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow Look for the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much; Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seems all too brief; Don't lengthen your pain with undue grief. Lift up your heart and peace to thee, God wanted me now-He set me free.
