William “Bill” Scott passed into the arms of Jesus, surrounded by his loving family, March 31, at Tacoma General Hospital. His father was Douglas E. Scott, one of the last heroes of World War II, who died at age 90. His mother, Elizabeth G. Scott, passed away six months after her 100th birthday.

Raised in Kapowsin, Bill attended Bethel High School.

Bill and his wife, Lucy, married for almost 62 years, moved to the Key Peninsula in 1972. They cleared the land and built their family home where they raised their two sons, Dan (Traci) and Bob (Julie). Survived by Lucy, the couple was blessed with nine grandchildren: Mellisa, Gideon, Meggin, Leeya, Zeke, Gabe, Nicki, Laura and Becky. From those nine, they were also blessed with 13 great-grandchildren and one more on the way.

Bill always thanked God for his life and the family God gave him.

Services for Bill will be held at Discovery Baptist Church in Gig Harbor May 14 at 2 p.m. The family invites you to join them in celebration of Bill’s life.
