Michael Lee Scott

Michael Lee Scott, 52, passed away Saturday, April 29, 2006, at his residence in Wasilla after a long illness.

A military graveside service is scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday, May 5, 2006, at Wasilla Aurora Cemetery. A small gathering will follow the service at his beloved wife Eleanor's home.

He was born Feb. 26, 1954, in Blocken, Iowa. He was an aircraft metals technologist, with a degree in metals technology. He also held several certificates in welding and instruction. He was in the US Air Force from June 1975 until his retirement in July 1989. He retired as a tech sergeant and welding instructor. He moved to Alaska in 1979, and resided in the city of Wasilla. Being a professional welder, one can see his touch on Providence Hospital and Elmendorf Air Force Base. He was a life-long Baptist, but was unable to attend services due to his illness. He received several commendations and medals throughout his career in the Air Force. He enjoyed fishing, camping, hunting, bowling and nature.

His family said, &#8220Michael love nature and wildlife. He was a loving husband, great-grandfather, grandfather, brother-in-law, uncle and friend. He had a wonderful sense of humor, was kind and loving in every way. He will be missed by many.”

He is survived by his loving wife, Eleanor Scott; two great-grandchildren, two grandchildren, one stepson, one stepdaughter, brother-in-law, sisters-in-law, many nieces and nephews, and several cousins and relatives in Blocken, Iowa.
