Bill Scott

Bill Scott was born in Clemetson, Minn., Aug. 26, 1943. He was the son of the late Clarence and Nora Scott, and had three brothers whom he cherished and loved immensely: Robert (Nancy) of Bonesteel, Henry (Rose) of Norfolk, Neb., Kenneth (Lola) of Wisconsin.
Bill grew up on a farm outside of Baudette, Minn., where he went to school and met his wife, Kathryn, (Forsyth), whom he wed July 22, 1966. They would move to Nebraska with their daughter and add three more children to their family: Wanda (Donald)  Gibbs of Boone, Iowa; Bill of Custer, S.D.; Anita of Rapid City, S.D.; and Bobbi  (Craig) Hindle of Pringle, S.D. He is also survived by his 10 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, which are all his honorary pallbearers.
Bill cherished life and the people who had surrounded him. Bill loved to travel to see new places and meet new friends. He never stood still and stayed active. He enjoyed wood working and building furniture and buildings. He always was available to help anyone who wanted it.
Bill Scott lost his battle with COVID-19 on Sunday, Nov. 8, 2020. He was 77. He had been visited by his adult children while in the hospital in Spearfish, S.D.
The Scott family would like to share their thanks and appreciation to all the family and friends for all their kind words and gifts. There will be a Celebration of Life for Bill this coming summer of 2021. It will be announced at a later date.
Arrangements have been placed in the care of Chamberlain McColley’s Funeral Home in Custer.
