Scott Birdeen Bellon, 70, Mapleton,ND passed away on Friday, September 3, 2021, at Sanford Hospice House surrounded by his loved ones.
Scott was born in Jamestown, ND on April 5, 1951, to Bernadette Anderson.
He met his wife Susan of 38 years through mutual friends on a blind date. They were married on September 4, 1982, in Aurora, CO later moving to Fargo, ND to be closer to family.
Scott was a hard worker, always going that extra mile for everyone. He was employed by Northern Improvement for 27 years as a driver/operator until his retirement in 2017.
He loved spending time with his family and enjoyed going fishing, just was never able catch anything. He loved watching westerns, especially any John Wayne movies. He never was an animal lover however he had special place in his heart for our daughter Tara's cat Tootsie (probably because their attitudes were the same ("grumpy old man").
He is survived by his wife Susan, mother Bernadette Anderson, daughters Tara Bellon, Ann Jacobsen (John), Eva Jacobsen Rangitsch (Pat), brothers Jim Bellon (Edris), Mark Anderson (Kathy), Dave Anderson (Sandy), Mike Anderson (Shelley), Tracy Anderson, Dana Anderson (Kayenne), Bobby Anderson (Laura), sisters Bonnie Rennells (Jeff), Judy Heinen (Barry).
He is preceded in death by his dad Vernol Anderson, brother Randy, sister Donnette.
