Scott D. Boles, age 55 of Woodville WI and formerly of River Falls WI, died unexpectedly on Saturday, July 18, 2020. Scott was born December 3, 1964 in River Falls WI to parents Donald and Margaret (Olson) Boles. Scott attended River Falls High School, where he lettered in Track, graduating with the Class of 1983. Scott furthered his education at UWRF. He would be united in marriage to Jennifer Belknap, and become the father to Anthony and Stella.

Scott was a long-time and loyal employee of both the 3M Corporation, and Trient Technologies. Outside of work, Scott enjoyed the outdoors, fly fishing, hiking, and staying active. Scott will be remembered as a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers! Whether it was game day or any other day, cooking and grilling were well known specialties of his. Scott loved his dogs, especially his Golden Retriever, Duncan. Though he was a somewhat private guy, Scott was a good man and a good dad to his step-son Anthony and his daughter Stella. He will be missed by family and friends alike.

Scott is survived by his daughter, Stella; his step-son, Anthony; his mother, Peg; his siblings and their families; former wife, Jennifer; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Donald.

  • Scott,

    A couple days from now is your funeral. I still can’t believe it. I never knew how much of an impact someone could have on me until they were gone. You sir were one of kind. No matter how cranky, and arrogant I was. You always were so kind. I don’t know how you dealt with my teenager self, but thank you.

    This whole thing threw me for a loop. I didn’t know how to deal with it, but a pretty great cousin of mine said something to me. “Think about the great times you had together.” I know that may sound cliche, but it helped. Thank you for showing me tips and tricks to pool. All the times we went to Eau Galle to fish or even just to walk around. You always texting me on my birthday or holidays. These are things you didn’t have to do, but you did. There were so many more memories that I will never forget.

    Thank you. Thank you for always being there for my mom, and I no matter what. I really did appreciate it! You were such a good & wise man Scott. Rest In Peace.


  • Bucky, you will be missed. You were one of those fellas I always enjoyed catching up with. May you be at peace my friend 🌟 June
