LINNEUS – Donald W. Scott, 52, passed away May 4, 2014. He was born Aug. 21, 1961, in Houlton, the son of Donald D. and Linda (Stewart) Scott.
Donald was a hard working man who always worked outside. Growing up as a child in Linneus, he would pick potatoes, like most County children of that time, and worked in the woods with his father. At the age of 15 Donald started working for a Christmas tree farm which he later purchased. His woods business started with one skidder which he purchased in his young twenties and then he added a self loader. His business grew from there to become S.T.F. Inc. Donald loved his children and worked hard to provide a future for them. His love for the outdoors included a passion for hunting and fishing. Donald, his sons and his brothers always like to compete amongst themselves during these seasons.
Besides his mother of Linneus, he is survived by his wife, Doris (Gartner) Scott of Linneus; four children, Fay Roussel of Grand Lake Stream, Donald R. Scott, Daniel Janus, Amelia Scott, all of Linneus; two granddaughters, Emma and Meghan; brothers and sisters, Pam Scott, Danny and Tammy Scott, Gary and Donna Scott, David Scott, John and Margaret Scott, all of Linneus. He was predeceased by his father.
