Ronald A. Shattuck Sr. (Butch)
Ronald Arthur Shattuck Sr. (Butch), a former Milford resident and business owner, passed away peacefully on May 24, 2019 at his home in Kissimmee, Florida with his devoted wife and two children by his side. He was 72 years old and fought a very brave fight against cancer. Butch was an avid antique car enthusiast, having received many flags and trophies over the years. He and his wife Linda could often be found with friends at local car shows and events. He also enjoyed going to car races and spending time with family. GTOs and Novas were his favorites. Butch was fascinated by and well-learned about wild life, which he would readily discuss when asked.
Butch grew up in Billerica, MA and was the son of the late Charles and Myra Shattuck. He went to Billerica High School where he met his future bride and life partner, Linda, whom he was married to for 50 wonderful years. In 1971 Butch started his own business, Shattuck Paving, which is still operating today. Shattuck Paving has become a family legacy, now run by his son Ronald Jr., as well as several of his grandchildren. Butch was a true entrepreneur, and after retiring from the paving business he went on to start another company, Shattuck Homes, where he acted as contractor and built several beautiful homes in the Milford area. After several years of building homes Butch and Linda officially retired to the Kissimmee, Florida area to enjoy some milder weather and quality time together.
Butch was an outstanding family man. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, and grandfather. He is survived by his wife Linda Hamelin Shattuck, his daughter Patricia Anne Roseboro and her husband Ron of Largo, Fl., his son Ronald Shattuck Jr. and his wife Melissa of Francestown, NH, and his 12 amazing grandchildren. Butch is also survived by his brother Brian W. Shattuck of Milford, and his sister Jeanne A. Lafontaine of Wilton. He is predeceased by his sister Irene L. Roberge, who also died of cancer. Butch leaves a wonderful legacy with his family of love, persistence, generosity, and hard-work ethic that will not soon be forgotten.
