Obituary of Walter E. Scollard


Walter E. Scollard, Age 86, went to be with his heavenly Father on January 2, 2023. He was able to celebrate his birthday in heaven with his beloved wife of 62 years. Walt is survived by his children, Jodi Schmidt (Colin) Greg Scollard (Kirsten) Julie Schepers (Donn); daughter-in-law, Leslie Kurre, 9 beloved grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren, Brother; Tom Scollard (Shirley) and many extended family members and lovely friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Mabel Scollard and son, Steven Scollard.


Walt will always be remembered for his gracious heart and deep love of Carol - his “ true love of his life” for over 62 years. He was a devoted, loving, gentle and tender care giver for the last 8 years. His heart broke when she was gone, so being reunited after just over three months was a beautiful blessing. God surely heard and answered his prayers.


Walt was also an amazing, thoughtful, and loving dad, grandpa, great grandpa, and friend. He was generous with his love and was happiest when surround by his family and life-long friends. Walt put everyone first, to know him was to love him, he had a huge heart, the best smile, infectious laugh and always full of joy!


He loved spending time at the cabin and was filled with pride and joy that it brought his friends and family together for many decades. He loved to ride his side by side, check on the families and neighbors at the lake and taught us all his love to fish in his secret bay on Graves Lake.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 11024 Church Street NE, Hanover, MN 55341. Service at 1:00 p.m. with Visitation at 12:00 p.m. Private Burial, Remer MN.
