It is with deep sadness that the family of Daniel K. Scott, 64, of Byron, announces his passing. He died peacefully on April 15, 2021 at Strong Memorial Hospital surrounded by his loving wife and two children.
Dan was born on Dec. 16, 1956 in Batavia to parents Carl (Cathy) and Barbara Scott. He married his high school sweetheart, Kim (Hart) on Oct. 20, 1979. They went on to create a beautiful family and homestead in Byron.
Dan dedicated his entire life to caring for his family and worked tirelessly to leave the world better than he found it. Dan was actively involved with his church family at Northgate Free Methodist Church in Batavia. He enjoyed spending his time outdoors, taking walks with his wife and dog, Riley, hiking and canoeing in the Adirondacks, traveling out west, maintaining his garden and property, and being “papa” to his three beautiful granddaughters.
His memory will be kept alive by his wife of 41 years, Kim (Hart) Scott, his children Katelyn (David) Lee and Jason (Brianna) Scott, as well as his granddaughters Madison Lee, Harper Lee, and Adalynn Scott. Dan will also be lovingly remembered by his siblings Jeffrey (Elizabeth) Scott, Steven Scott (Becky Green), Anne (Richard) Bird, and Karen (Brian) Laney, along with many adoring nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his father-in-law Burton Hart, and will be remembered fondly by his mother-in-law Eleanor Hart, as well as his sister- and brother-in-laws Pamela (Charles) Gugel and Todd (Valerie) Hart.
A private Celebration of Dan’s life and legacy will be held at a later date.
