Keith Scott, 67, resident of Watford City, formerly of Wellington, Colo., passed away Saturday, May 31, 2014, at St. Alexis Medical Center in Bismarck, N.D.
Keith was born Dec. 30, 1946, in Pueblo, Colo., to Hallie David Rather and Shirley Atkinson. He was raised in Laramie, Wyo., where he graduated high school in 1964. He attended Wyotech, where he later taught classes for several years.
He married Penny Curby in 1969. They had four children. They moved to Colorado and then to South Dakota. They later divorced and he moved to Fort Collins, Colo. There he married Ruth Mary Lyons. They were married for 21 years before divorcing. He owned several businesses, including K & S Enterprises and a flea market in Loveland. He semi-retired and worked for Connective Systems & Supply in Loveland before moving to Watford City, N.D., in 2012 to be closer to his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed working at Car Quest in Watford City where he was known to everyone as ‘Grandpa’.
He was an avid toy collector and loved “milling around at the flea markets.” He collected and sold toys and many cars that he had restored and raced over the years. He was a member of the NHRA and loved going to the rod runs that they put on. He had a very dry sense of humor and would talk to anyone.

Grandchildren David Scott of Longmont, Colo., Devyn and James Devers, Riley and James Newton, all of Watford City, N.D. Jordan, Brandee, Midaja and Stetson Scott, all of Jamestown, N.D.
