John Francis Scott, 87, of Hoyt Lakes, formerly of Hines, died on Tuesday, April 3, 2007.

A memorial service was held at 11 a.m. on April 7, 2007, at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Aurora. The Cremation Society of Minnesota in Duluth assisted the family with arrangements.

He was born on March 6, 1920, to Julius and Elizabeth (Adams) Scott, in Flensburg, Minn., where he lived until he was 12 years old. He moved to a farm in Hines, spent four years in the Army during World War II, farmed in Hines for 11 years and moved his family to the Iron Range in 1958 after four years working away from home. He married Margaret Gross on July 28, 1947.

Some of his favorite time was spent in Hines deer hunting with his sons, sons-in-law and grandsons. It was always special to him to spend time with his family during the holidays. He enjoyed deer hunting and fishing, playing cards and remodeling family homes. He was a member of the Aurora Legion Post.

He is survived by his wife; sister, Betty Loch; brother, Allan (Shirley) Scott; children, Carl (Thomas) Kramer, David (Barbra) Scott, Sandra (Paul Swanson) Scott, Donald (Colleen) Scott, Deborah (Michael) Broten and Mark (Gayle) Scott; and nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
