William G. Scott
William G. Scott, 86, of Louisville went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Sept. 22, 2010.
Born Feb. 6, 1924, in Carroll County, he was a son of the late Harry and Laura (Gamble) Scott.
He graduated from Perrysville High School in 1942, Kent State University in 1952 with a bachelor's degree and received a master's degree from Indiana University. He was an elementary school teacher in both the Louisville and Plain Local school districts for many years. He loved to teach, especially science and was a creative and caring teacher.
He was also an accomplished carpenter who did both major and minor jobs into his 80's as well as constructing 17 houses during summers while he was a teacher.
He was a proud veteran of WWII. He enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1943 and served in the European Theater until 1945. He was a tech sergeant and flight engineer for B-24 Liberators. He flew 36 missions while in Europe and was training on B-29s for the Pacific Theater when Japan surrendered. He was an active member of Marlboro Volunteers and very much enjoyed being with and talking with other veterans, especially at the many parades he was involved in over the years.
He was a member of the Eagles, VFW, ORTA, SCRTA and Christ United Methodist Church of Louisville. He was a charter member (1962) of the Kiwanis Club of Louisville and was active as a member until his recent illness and death. His family and friends will remember him as an extremely hard working, loving, kind, gentle, highly intelligent, humorous, ornery and fun Christian man. Bill is very much loved and will be missed terribly.

Scott, whom he married in 1948; three daughters, Debra (Rick) Kohut, Cheryl (Mike) Schott and Suzanne Scott; five grandchildren, Shawn (Becky) Morris, Colleen Kohut, Laura (Michael) Arbogast, Joshua Kohut and William Schott; a great grandchild, Maya Morris; a brother, Dick (Francis) Scott and a sister, Mary Scott.
