Scott, Allen Harris (11 September 1921 - 3 November 2011)


Allen Scott, 90, of Stratford, formerly of Neillsville, died Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011, at the Hospice house in Wausau.


Allen Harris Scott was born Sept. 11, 1921, in Eau Claire County, the son of William and Wilma (Schreiner) Scott.  He was united in marriage to Arcella "Sally" Roetter Aug. 8, 1945, in Eau Claire. Then they moved to the state of Washington, where their son, William, was born. Two years later, they moved back to Wisconsin and owned a Texaco gas station and farmed in Bloomer.  In 1963, they sold the gas station and moved to Neillsville, where they farmed on CTH C. They retired in 1981 and moved to Maple Road; Sally died in 2005, and shortly after Allen moved to Stratford.


He was a member of the Living Hope Evangelical Free Church in Neillsville.  For many years he and his wife were leaders of the Happy Hollow 4-H Club.  Allen enjoyed woodworking, fishing, bowling and traveling.


He is survived by two children, William (Shelly) Scott of Calhan, CO, and Bonnie Scott of Wausau; four grandchildren, Michael (Suzanne), Ashley (Pete), Nickolaus and Brandon; and four great-grandchildren, Will, Jacob, Carlie and Alexander.


He was preceded in death by his wife, Arcella "Sally", a grandson, David; his parents and two brothers, Stanley and Richard.


A memorial service for Allen will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, 2011 at the Living Hope Evangelical Free Church in Neillsville.  Pastor Steven Wentz will officiate.
