My fondest memory with Scott was when we took our motorcycles (no helmets) for a ride to Manitowish Waters in 1965. The ride thru the Shawano area during the fall time was memorable for sure as was the week "Up North". Scott was my friend. Hey Dutton, I raise a glass to you! My deepest sympathies to the Dutton family.

I feel especially blessed to have had Mr. Dutton as a teacher in highschool. He was one of the most formitive role models of that part of my life. It's hard to narrow down the ways in which he positively impacted my development as a person, but what I'm most grateful for is how he demonstrated thoughtful emotion. He encouraged the thoughtful merger of logic and emotion in a way that has forever molded me into a better person. Thanks for everything Mr. Dutton!

Scott and I graduated together at North High School in Sheboygan WI in 1966. I have wonderful memories of Scott being such a kind, gentle, soul. My thoughts and prayers are with Scott's entire family.

I did not know Mr. Dutton. I wanted to see his picture better so I double clicked on it to enlarge it. Being a big dog lover myself, I just loved that picture! From reading the well-written obituary, I bet the picture really captured him. My sympathy to you for your loss. I'm positive there are dogs in heaven too.

I am so sorry for your loss. As a teacher at West for the past 18 years I've had the honor of knowing and teaching with such a gifted man. Our conversations were always heartfelt and meaningful. I enjoyed his stories of his travels, especially of his fly fishing endeavors out west. He will be greatly missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I wish I had more eloquent words for a man who has taught me so much about the power of a voice. Mr. Scott Dutton has been one of the most influential figures in my life and I cannot express the depth and intensity of the pain I feel for his passing. As both a mentor and a friend we laughed and learned and cried and questioned and knowing I won't be able to send any more excessively long emails or return to Appleton to meet for coffee is devastating. He has fostered so much of my confidence and independence and curiosity - I know my current travels have been inspired by his adventurous and generous spirit. I could write novels about all the lives he lived, the stories he told, his immense and admirable passion for teaching, the incredible sanctuary of learning he created in the classroom, and the immense and immeasurable impact he has had on the lives of so many people who have had the humbling honor of knowing and caring about Scott. "We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity; more than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost." - Charlie Chaplin Thank you, Scott. I will miss you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Scott made a difference as he touched many lives. He was very blessed to have you all along side him on his adventures. I will miss the sound of his laughter and sparkle in his eye when he was near a pet store. May God comfort you and give you peace in the days ahead.

My deepest sympathy to the Dutton Family. I hope this is the Same Scott Dutton that I went to school with in Sheboygan North High Class of 1966. If it is would you please let me know because I am the Class Historian and I keep updates on our classmates. And I would keep the Obit on Scott. Again my deepest sympathy Darlene Leonhard

Mr. Dutton made an enormous impact on my daughter's life when she was in high school. He encouraged her to be her authentic self and helped her to share that with others as he encouraged her to lead discussions and select topics to study. He wrote a letter to her upon her graduation that she still turns to often, to ground herself when she is feeling overwhelmed or uncertain. He was a profound and grace filled teacher. Even though I did not know him well, he changed my daughter's life for the good. Prayers and blessings to all of you at this time.

With tears, I write that I am so happy to have had Scott as a teacher, mentor, and friend (as so many of us are). His candid demeanor, mind-opening lessons, and willingness to lend his time, resources and wisdom made him irreplaceable in our community. He will be greatly missed - my condolences.
