Walter Charles Scott was born, December 31, 1963, in Streator, IL, where he was raised and attended Streator Township High School. He lived for many years in North Carolina before moving to the Fargo/Moorhead area in 2011. Walter worked for Solid Comfort from the time he arrived in Fargo until his health forced him to retire in October of 2018. In the short time Walter has lived here he impacted many lives.
Walter enjoyed fishing, drawing, playing guitar, drinking beer and spending time with his grandchildren.
Walter was a man that any man or mother would admire. Everyone who ever met Walter liked him and he was loved by all his co-workers at Solid Comfort, his family and his friends. He never complained, even during his worst days and while going through cancer treatment. When he started his cancer treatment routine his biggest worry was whether he would make it home for Christmas. He did everything the doctors told him to be able to leave the hospital. Every day after that was a blessing for him. He used to say, “I am going to run until the battery is dry, like the Energizer Bunny.”
He is survived by his longtime companion, Marina Jean Waters; his children, Jarod Scott, Sheldon (Jill) Hemphill, Dallas (Kristy) Bankston, Alena, Brittany Waters and Cody Waters; nine grandchildren; mother, Marilyn Scott; brother, George Scott; and sisters, Mary (Richard) Bay and Kristine Uhren.
He was preceded in death by his father, Charles E. Scott; brother, Arthur W. Scott; niece, Heather Uhren; nephew, Dalton Mesarchik; and his maternal and paternal grandparents.
Memorials may be directed to Walter’s family.
