Donald Glenn “Chopper” Scott, age 54 years, of Wellsville, Mo., passed away Sunday, October 6, 2019, at his home.

A lifelong resident of the Jefferson City area, Chopper attended grade school at St. Peters School, Helias High School and later graduated from Jefferson City High School.
While still in Jefferson City, he was employed by Scholastic for many years and upheld family tradition by working with the Mid-State Bowling Alley and Westgate Lanes. For the past few years Chopper was working for the Mexico, Mo. Walmart in the automotive department.
Chopper had a love for the outdoors, whether he was fishing or swimming, he was at home near the water. He was an avid sports fan, especially loved rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Cardinals. He loved playing darts, dancing, bowling, barbequing with a cold beer in hand and rock and roll music. He looked forward to peaceful getaways to the Lake of the Ozarks. Chopper will always be known for his contagious smile, laid back attitude and approachable demeanor. He loved people and was able to strike up conversation with anyone he saw. You always knew if Chopper was involved, it was going to be a good time.
