Buttars, Shaun - Salt Lake City  
Shaun J. Buttars 1965-2015 Salt Lake City, Utah-Shaun J. Buttars, 49, passed away peacefully on January 20, 2015 as a result of complications from a stroke. Shaun was born on January 29, 1965. He spent his early childhood attending Ensign Elementary, going to dinner at the Pagoda restaurant with his parents, and rolling down the hill at the Clarkston City Cemetery. He attended Skyline High School where he wrestled, played football and began singing and playing drums in a band, which he continued through his early college years. His high school and college buddies have remained lifelong friends. Shaun obtained Bachelor's and Master's degrees and spent most of his professional life as a public servant for the State of Utah. At one time he managed the State Archives Record Center and was featured in an article in the Deseret News about that facility. Shaun was an expert in all matters of public records management and took great joy in the relationships he built with his colleagues. But Shaun's greatest pride and joy were his two sons, Michael and Christian (their mother, Jen, and Shaun were married for 15 years). His first reaction to the surprise news of impending fatherhood was, "Oh cool!" Shaun was a natural dad. He had those boys in his arms every minute they would let him. When the boys were younger, he loved having them come to visit him for lunch at work when they had breaks from school. Since his divorce, he has spent every weekend with the boys spending countless hours hanging out, watching football and grilling. Shaun leaves behind a legacy of caring fatherhood, countless funny stories and inside jokes, and the best ever way to cook beer brats. He is predeceased by his father, Royal Buttars; and survived by his mother, Margaret Buttars; and sons Michael and Christian. Shaun disliked funerals and would have hated to make people get in their "Sunday clothes" to come to his. Instead we will have a celebration of Shaun's life on Thursday, January 29 (Shaun's 50th birthday) at the Mount Olympus Ward (4635 S Lanarck Rd.) Visitation will begin at 6:30pm, with a brief service beginning at 7pm followed by a reception for his family and friends. Please come as you are. Bring pictures, cards and stories of Shaun to share. At Christian's request, flowers should be white. A brief graveside service will be held at the Clarkston City Cemetery at noon on Saturday, January 31. On line condolences www.larkinmortuary.com .
