Scott was born on July 6, 1958 to John and Sue (Ayers) Burrs in Belmond. He graduated from Corwith Wesley High School in 1976 and earned his Diesel Technology degree from Iowa Lakes Community College in 1978. He found his career working on John Deere equipment and also ran and operated the family farm for 20 years.

Scott married Beth Hall in 1981 and to that marriage three children were born. The family made their home on a farm outside Corwith. There he provided a steady and safe home, as a gentle and hard-working father.

As the kids grew, Scott found himself back at old hobbies including antique tractor pulling and riding motorcycles. You always knew it was Scott pulling up on his bike, seeing as he rode as gently as he spoke, and that didnít necessarily mean slow. It was during these years, he met the one he was meant to find.

On September 21, 2013 Scott married Kathy Tonn. This union blended their families, and together they shared five children and 16 grandchildren. Scott enjoyed life surrounded by family, kids, projects, and pets.

Scott was forced to take early retirement due to the worsening of his medical condition. He continued to be cared for by his devoted and loving wife, Kathy, through it all.

He will be remembered especially for his dry sense of humor, quick wit, his mindful words, gentle soul, empathetic nature, love of children and animal and readiness to help anyone in need. And above all for his witty zingers and twinkling blue eyes.

Left to cherish his memory are wife, Kathy Burrs; children, Tricia (Duane) McGregor of Albert City, Cassie (Bruce) Collins of Kanawha, Dan (Melissa) Burrs of Corwith, Angela (Chris) Robinson of Janesville, Jesse (Amanda) Tonn of Manly; grandchildren, Duane, Remington, Avery, & Kimber McGregor, Amelia & Isaiah Collins, Julia, Jacob, & Joseph Burrs, Gayle & Tyler Robinson, Alec Servantez, Westin & Ryker Tonn; mother, Sue Burrs of Britt; sisters, Nancy Rasmussen of Kanawha, Ann (Bruce) Carroll of Corwith; sister-in-law Susan Burrs of Corwith, along with many nieces and nephews.

Scott was preceded in death by his father, John Burrs of Corwith; brother, Kevin Burrs of Corwith, and grandchildren, Angel Babies Gabriel and Brecklynn.
