He will be remembered as a hard working “manly man” who was also a kind, gentle and caring man.

(Deana) Scott Jr. of Wolverine; grandchildren, Daniel, Chase (Alyona), Nicole and Jared; a great grandson, Alexander; sisters, Joyce Hudson of Mackinaw City and Donna (Mike) Azure of Alanson; a brother, Ronald (Nita) Scott of Petoskey and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Rosemary Scott and a son, Robert G. Scott.
