Scott Alan Schimanski was born on May 2, 1952 in Fosston, the son of Howard J. and Lois (Green) Schimanski. He grew up in McIntosh and graduated from McIntosh-Winger High School in 1970. Following high school, he attended college at Brainerd, Moorhead and took night classes at Bemidji and Thief River Falls.
Scott was united in marriage to Karen Lecy on June 7, 1975. After their marriage, they made their home in McIntosh, and Scott worked with his father at the McIntosh Bakery. He purchased the bakery in 1983 and continued to operate it until the present time.
He was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Fosston. Scott was active in Boy Scouts and was a scoutmaster for over 30 years. He liked hunting, fishing, camping, planting trees, being outdoors and, most of all, spending time with family and friends.
Scott thoroughly enjoyed his work at the bakery. Although he spent many working hours at the bakery, Scott’s true enjoyment came from working with his family in the business and visiting with his customers.
