Pete Scott, age 83, husband of the late Ethel (Sizemore) Scott, passed away Saturday, January 12, 2019. Pete was born January 14, 1935, in Bryan, Texas.
Pete attended Oneida Baptist Institute, a Christian boarding school in Oneida, Kentucky, where he met Ethel Sizemore. They were married in 1953 and moved to Alaska, where he resided for over 65 years. Pete was passionately involved in the construction of Hillside Baptist Church in Alaska.
Pete was stationed in Alaska and spent 8 yrs. in the Army. He was honorably discharged with the rank of Sargent. Pete worked for the Alaska Railroad and retired after 30 years. He would share many stories about his time there.
Pete spent many hours with Ethel tending to the raspberry patch. He would also spend days making many handmade “Alaska theme” clocks, which he and Ethel sold. He enjoyed driving with Ethel to Potters Marsh to view geese and enjoyed whale-watching. He spent many hours wading in Cook Inlet and the Kenai River dipnetting to catch fish for smoking and canning. Pete was a selfless man and could always be heard saying, “Whatever makes everyone happy.”
Pete is preceded in death by his parents; his wife Ethel; and two infant children: Ruth Ann and Debra Lynn Scott.
Pete is survived by many loved ones, including three daughters, *Pamela Rose Smith of Texas, Sharon Ann Dowler of Colorado and Katherine Jean Anderson of Idaho; one son: *Pete Rothel Scott of Alaska (*twins); sons-in-law: Michael Smith, David Dowler and Trent Anderson; and daughter-in-law: Tammie Smith.

Pete will always live on in the hearts of his family and his spirit continues to live on now in his Father's house alongside Ethel with our Heavenly Father, God. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Oneida Baptist Institute; Oneida, Kentucky.
