Dr.  Stuart Cotler Obituary
Dr. Stuart Cotler

AGE: 63 • Chadds Ford, PA

Stuart passed away suddenly on February 23, 2014. He was born on April 3, 1950 in Brooklyn, NY to Nathan and Terry Cotler. Stuart received his BA (pre-dental) from Columbia University in 1972 followed by his D.D.S. from Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry. In 1978, he completed his MS in Orthodontics also from Case Western. Stuart was a member of several professional organizations including the American Dental Association; Dental Associations of Ohio, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania; American Association of Orthodontics; and the World Federation of Orthodontics.

Stuart was President of Cotler Orthodontics for more than 30 years establishing offices in Cleveland, OH followed by offices in Mays Landing, NJ and Exton, PA. Most recently he was employed by American Dental Solutions in Pottstown and Wyomissing, PA.

Stuart was an avid history buff. His passion for sports, both present and past was unending. He was a huge NY Yankee fan and the reining family Jeopardy champion. The delivery of the Sunday NY Times gave him reading pleasure throughout the week.

Stuart loved each of his children with all his heart and was blessed to be able to attend his son's first collegiate baseball game. This was something that he dreamed of doing for a very long time. All of his family and friends meant the world to him.

Stuart was preceded in death by his father Nathan. He is survived by his mother, Terry; sister Karen; his loving wife, Cindy (Gooding), of 22 years; three children, Naomi, Dara, and Brady; and three grandchildren, Omani, Odessa and Braelyn.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday March 1, 2014 at 11:30 am at the McCrery and Harra Funeral Home, 3924 Concord Pike Wilmington 19803. Friends are welcome for visitation beginning at 10am.
