Scott was also a member of the American Legion 0298 in Marion.

Scott’s Family and Friends are heartbroken, and he will be missed more than words can even begin to express. Despite the past few years of health issues, he was still a jokester, always had a smile on his face and kept a positive attitude about life. He was an absolutely wonderful man, he was everyone’s friend, and he was definitely the love of Lydia’s life.

He has five beautiful grandchildren, Colton, Madisyn, Leo, Elsie and Palmer. He also has countless nieces and nephews who all meant the world to him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Harold “Bud” and sister in-law, Ruby, by his brother Gordy and sister in-law, Betty, and his brother Robert “Bob” Wermager, and by his sister, Jan and brother in-law, Phil Cooper.
