Karl ‘Scotty’ Scott

Karl "Scotty" Scott passed through this life to join our God on Monday, Nov. 29, 2010.

The first of three children born to Karl P. and Dorothy Scott, Karl grew up in Manitowoc. After graduating from Lincoln High School in 1945 he joined the U.S. Navy and was sent to North Africa.

While in the service he met his wife, Evelyn McNeill in Washington, D.C. They married in 1947. After returning to Wisconsin, they had three children – Odell, Cathie and Sally.

Karl chose teaching as a profession and began his career at a one-room schoolhouse in Richfield. He retired from Mequon High School after 36 years of service.

After retiring, he and Evelyn moved to Indio, Calif., where he spent 22 years. He enjoyed the desert mountains and volunteering, but not having to shovel snow was also high on his list.

Karl’s final resting place will be Arlington National Cemetery. Survivors include his wife of 63 years, Evelyn McNeill Scott; son, Odell Scott and wife Bobbi of Dallas, Texas; daughters, Cathie Scott and husband David Russell of Garland, Texas; and Sally Hader and husband Carl of Grafton; brothers, Roger of Newport News, Va., and Jack of Arizona.
