Lawrence William “Bill” Scott, the son of John and Alta (Flinn) Scott, was born March 1, 1938, in Gilmore City, Iowa.  His childhood years were spent in the Lake Center area where he attended school.

     Bill enjoyed camping, boating, fishing, gardening, playing cards, working in his yard, watching old Western movies and was very meticulous.  He loved animals and fed any stray animal that came along.  He also loved spending time with his family.

     Bill passed away at the Holy Family Hospital in Estherville, Iowa, on Friday, October 8, 2021, at the age of 83.  He was preceded in death by his parents; one grandson, Justin Salmon and three brothers: Buzz, Bob and Jack Scott.
