Scott Wilson of Port Byron NY passed away unexpectedly Saturday September 4th at Auburn Community Hospital after a quick but courageous battle with Legionnaire’s Disease. Scott was born on September 28, 1964 in Auburn NY to Marilyn and Leonard Wilson. Scott enjoyed spending time with all his grandchildren doing anything from camping and fishing to attending dirt track races. He also enjoyed planting and harvesting his large garden every year and having large holiday dinners where no one needed an invite. Scott was a truck driver his entire life, he had spent the last 29 years at DOT foods in Liverpool NY. He was a hard worker and dedicated to his profession, but always put his children and his grandchildren before himself – even stood at the top of the hill to direct everyone out of the driveway safely.
Scott was predeceased by his father Leonard E. Wilson, his sister Debbie Sobotka, and by his wife, and absolute love of his life, Teresa Wilson.
