William Walter Schott, of Telford, passed away on Friday, May 1, 2020 at the Lutheran Community at Telford. He was 86.

He was the beloved husband of the late Marilyn E. Schott, who passed away in 2008.

In his free time, William enjoyed golfing in his younger years and playing the guitar. He would often play the guitar and sing for the fellow residents at the Lutheran home in Telford. He also enjoyed going to church and spending time with his family.

I'll always cherish the memories of Mr. Schott at my thanksgiving table after the passing of Marilyn. He was a kind and gentle soul and will be greatly missed by the Altmann & Coulter families. Below is a picture from Thanksgiving 2012.
