Scott J. Guttenberg, 41 of Jefferson, died unexpectedly on Sunday, September 13, 2020 at his home.
Scott was born on December 21, 1978 in Madison, WI, the son of Donald and Patricia (Penzkover) Guttenberg. He was a 1997 graduate of Jefferson High School and worked as a machinist at Bruno Independent Living Aids of Oconomowoc. Scott loved to work with his hands – especially with his dad. Many hours were spent together working on cars, building decks, and other projects. He was an avid sports fan, and followed football, baseball, and basketball closely. Scott had a sense of humor and was known as a jokester. He was the youngest of the family and loved as a brother. He enjoyed the outdoors and valued his pets deeply; loving many dogs, cats, chinchillas, ferrets, and many others throughout his life. Although his family will miss him dearly, they are comforted in knowing his pain is now over.
He is survived by: his maternal grandmother Darlene Penzkover of Jefferson; mother Patricia Guttenberg of Jefferson; children Patience Olson of Jefferson, Kyler Guttenberg of Lake Mills, and Jeffrey Guttenberg of Columbus, and brothers Christopher (Martina) Guttenberg of Cibolo, TX and Daniel (Michelle) Guttenberg of Johnson Creek. Scott is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents John and Edith Guttenberg, father Donald in 2018, and a brother Donald Patrick in infancy.
A graveside service will be held at 11:00AM on Friday, September 18, 2020 at Rock River Cemetery of Jefferson with Fr. Tom Coyle presiding.
