Scott (Scotty) Michael Borders was welcomed home by his loved ones on Monday, January 25th, 2021 at the age of 63.

Scott was born on November 10th, 1957 in Duluth, MN. He was the son of Clifford and Opal (DeRosier) Borders. He was a chef his entire life and worked in several restaurants in the Brainerd Lakes Area.

Scott enjoyed playing league softball with his friends. He enjoyed all sports, especially baseball, and was known to never miss a Twin’s game. He loved listening to music and always had a story about the band or the song that was playing. No matter where you might have met Scotty, you were sure to make a new friend (Butchey) who was generous, kind and ready for a few good laughs with a cup of coffee or a beer… Your choice!

He was preceded in death by his wife, the love of his life, Julie (Evans) Borders; parents, Clifford and Opal (DeRosier) Borders and brother, Dean Johns.

He is survived by his daughter, Carissa (Jason) Rausch; grandchildren, Alyssa Abrego, Devon Rausch and Madysen Rausch; great grandchild, Aerabella Dunmire; sister, Pennie (Borders) Edberg; nephews, Cliff Edberg and Joe Edberg; and many other family members and friends.

Scott's celebration of life will be held on Thursday, February 4th, at Nelson-Doran Funeral Home in Brainerd, MN from 4 to 7pm.
