Scott Edward Nelson, 58, of Montgomery City, passed away on Friday, November 10, at his home. Scott was born on May 5, 1965, in St. Charles. He is the son of Larry Schulz and Ellen Bauer.
Scott was a team leader at General Motors for 10 years. He was proud to be union and of his work at GM. He enjoyed going hunting, fishing, his cigarettes, and barbequing. Scott was a great cook and was known for his BBQ pork steaks. His skills in the kitchen and on the grill were self-taught, he was the best cook in the family. He had an appreciation for trucks and hot rods, especially his own truck. It was always spotless and well-maintained. Above everything else, Scott loved his children, and he was damn proud of them. He gave everything he could to them. He was a loving and caring man with a gentle, kind-hearted soul, who would do anything to help somebody; but boy, was he stubborn as a nail in concrete, but in the end that will be the thing we miss the most about him. He had an intense work ethic and put 110% into everything that he did, regardless of the sacrifices he had to make. He found joy in things like working on window tint and household projects purely because it involved his sons, and that was just the type of person that Scott was, he was devoted. He always gave recognition for his son’s accomplishments. The last five years of his life his number one priority was his daughter, Riley, and spending time with her. He truly had a boundless love for his kids, and they will miss
