Stanley Harold Scott
Stanley Harold Scott was born on May 5, 1927, in Kellerton, Iowa and passed away in Boise, Idaho on May 16, 2019, as a result of a stroke. The family gathered the week before to celebrate his 92nd birthday.
Stanley was born to Loren and Mae Scott and was a brother to Perry Scott, Helene Gilman, Lorna Lee Brooks, and Gene Scott (all deceased). He also had another sister who passed as a child.
Stanley married Betty Anne (Pearce) Scott on November 16, 1947. They farmed near Kellerton and Mount Ayr, Iowa, raising three boys, Elliot, Bruce, and Tim. The family raised row crops, cattle, and hogs. Stanley also logged hardwoods, particularly black walnut trees. Stanley suffered broken vertebrae while clearing land with a dozer for their neighbors. This led him to sell the farm and move to Mountain Home, Idaho in April of 1965, where he opened a Coast to Coast hardware store. After a few years, he and Betty sold the store and moved to British Columbia, Canada along with their sons where they homesteaded nearly two sections of land over a span of five years. Then they returned to Mountain Home where Stanley raised cattle and logged with his two oldest sons. Stanley also worked in heavy construction before starting in the real estate business. Stanley was well known for selling homes and ranches. He was an avid hunter and took pride in harvesting trophy elk. Stanley was known as a wheeler-dealer at gun shows and enjoyed trading and selling old Winchester rifles and related items at gun shows.
Stanley and Betty got divorced in 1993. In 1995, Stanley traveled to the Philippines where he met his current wife, Imelda. They spent the next 23 years enjoying life together. They raised cows, enjoyed short vacations, and entertained family and friends. Stanley loved to go snowmobiling. He and Imelda enjoyed snowmobiling adventures with his grandsons, Kane and Tyler, and his “adopted daughters” Chela, Lourdes, Elsa, Melba, Katie and “adopted granddaughter” Micha. Stanley had many friends and was active in the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Mountain Home Air Force Appreciation Day.
Stanley is survived by his wife, Imelda; stepson, Ramon Emilio Aseñas; sons and wives: Elliot (Linda), Bruce (Roberta), Tim (Ramil) and grandsons: Kane, Tyler, and Jay Don. He is also survived by his “adopted” family, Chela, Lourdes, Elsa, Melba, Katie, and Micha.
