Andrew R. Scott Jr., 74, died unexpectedly Feb. 2, 2010, at his home on Enosburg Mountain in Vermont.

He was born Sept. 14, 1935, in Mount Vernon, N.Y., the son of the late Andrew R. Scott Sr. and Mary (McNab) Scott.

Mr. Scott was a 1953 graduate of Bethel High School. After high school, he worked for Vanderbilt Chemical Co. for a few years.

Mr. Scott joined the Connecticut National Guard and later entered the U.S. Army. He received an honorable discharge in 1963.

Following his military service, Mr. Scott worked as a machine tender paper maker for Kimberly-Clark for 30 years, retiring in 1997.

Mr. Scott and his partner, Patricia Potvin, were longtime residents of New Milford. Since the early 2000s, they made their home on Enosburg Mountain, where he enjoyed maple sugaring.

He was proud of his Scottish heritage, as both of his parents were born there, and was a NASCAR enthusiast who had attended the Daytona 500 for many years.

In addition to his partner, Mr. Scott is survived by a daughter, Beverly H. Stewart, and her husband, Emmett, and their children, Missy, Matthew and Megan of Austin, Texas; a son, Andrew Garry Scott, and his wife, Elzimar, and another daughter, Angie, of Waterbury; a sister, Anne Beuttenmuller, of Kensington, Md.; and three nieces. In addition to his parents, Mr. Scott was predeceased by two sons, James Scott and Stuart Scott; a nephew, Ricky Beuttenmuller; and his faithful companion, Virgil, last August.

Interment will take place in June in the New Milford Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to the Franklin County Humane Society, 30 Sunset Meadows, St. Albans, VT 05478.
