Malcolm Lee Butler, 95, of Scottsville, died on Friday, August 13, 2021, at his home, surrounded by his  children.

He was born on May 10, 1926, in Fluvanna County, a son of the late Samuel Vivian and Mattie Perkins (O’Brien) Butler.

Mr. Butler served in the U.S. Army from 1950 – 1952 and served in the Korean Conflict.  He worked for George Dansey Plumbing and Heating for over 40 years, attended Fox Memorial Baptist Church, loved gardening and birdwatching, sports, and especially enjoyed spending time with his family.  He never met a stranger, was the kindest and sweetest soul you will ever meet, and if you knew him, you loved him.
