Bill Scott


(Feb. 10, 2008)

Funeral services were conducted Wednesday, Feb. 13 at Thompson Funeral Home for Charles W. (Bill) Scott, 80, who died Sunday, Feb. 10 at his Powell home.

He was born at the family homestead in Ralston Dec. 25, 1927, to Charlie and Fairy Scott. He attended school in Powell and graduated from high school in 1947 where he played on the football and basketball teams. In Future Farmers of America, he earned the American Farmer Degree.

In 1949, he married Deloros Brown of Bridgewater, Iowa, and they recently celebrated 59 years together. He farmed all of his life in the Powell-Cody area.

He loved fiddle music and dancing to the Old Time Fiddlers. Other favorite pastimes were watching a football game, hunting elk after beet harvest and a good game of cards.

The couple’s “snowbird” travels took them to Hawaii numerous times, and they enjoyed taking the motor home to the southern part of the United States. They wintered in Mesa, Ariz., for the last 15 years, always returning to Powell in time to start another planting season. Bill was an active farmer up until his health prevented him last fall.

He is survived by his wife, Deloros; sons Rick and Don of Powell; daughters Dianna (Wes) Baker of Castle Rock, Colo., Linda MacDonald of Worland and Cindi Scott of Powell; sister Shirley Everett of Cheyenne; grandchildren Greg (Shanna) Baker of Olathe, Colo., Brian (Briana) Baker of Colorado Springs, Colo., Charlie (Sara) Scott and Andy Scott, both of Powell, Lisa (Bob) Gregg of Chicago, Ill., Nicole (Ryan) Thompson of Midland, Texas, Kristopher Scott and Kylena Scott, both of Ft. Collins, Colo., great-grandchildren Kaycee and Haley Baker, Zackary and Owen Baker, Keaton and Benjamin Gregg, Justin Scott, and Sebastian Thompson, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Cremation has taken place. Donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
