John Scott

John Franklin Scott, 80, of Sweet Home, died March 2, 2012.

He was born Feb. 19, 1943, in McMinnville to Delbert C. and Viola (Wolf) Scott.

He lived in Otis in his early years but at other times worked in Alaska. He spent his school years in Sweet Home.

Mr. Scott served in the United States Air Force from 1960 to 1966.

He was a logger like most of his family, starting as a skidder operator then later becoming a timber faller.

Mr. Scott is survived by his wife Sue; his children; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; cousin Kay and her husband Dennis (who happened to be his best friend from high school); and their buddy Tom White, who completed “The Three Amigos.”

He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Delbert and Viola Scott.

Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.
