Twin Cities "Music Man" Chuck Scott, 89, of Edina, passed away peacefully Friday June 19, 2020.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Caroline (Szczech) Scott and their children: Chuck Jr. and his wife Grace (Minneapolis), Cory and his wife Laura (West Linn, OR) and Cathy (Green Isle) and four grandchildren: Ben and Ethan Scott and Brooke and Cody Reinier. Chuck is also survived by his brother Jim (Roseville), his sister Sandi (Boulder, CO) and numerous nieces and nephews.

Born and raised in Worthington, MN, the son of Charles Scott Sr. and Florence (Fury) Scott. Chuck served in the Korean War as a member of the U.S. Army's Special Services and as part time assistant director of two Army bands: the 317th and the 330th.

After the war, Chuck taught public school band for several years, resigning in 1959 from Long Prairie to partner with Groth Music. During his 32 years with Groth, he introduced more than 30,000 students to music. He also led the company's entry into the school music program and launched its very popular Lessons in the Home program.

Chuck loved to hunt and fish, and relished spending his winters in the Florida Keys and his summers on Big Winnie. His greatest joy in retirement was the keyboard concerts he performed at various Twin Cities assisted-living facilities and the thousands of smiles he put on the faces of so many older adults.

A private ceremony will be held at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Memorials can be sent in Chuck’s name to the Nobles County Historical Society.

I was sorry to hear about Chuck. My sympathies go out to his family. It is not easy to lose a loved one. I remember him for his love of music and love for the "Fury family homeplace" and Fury's Island. Rest in peace. Becky Fury Schaetzke.

My heart goes out to all who loved Uncle Chuck. He was such a great loving family man and such a good man too. I remember him stopping up to the cabin to visit my dad in Isle, he always had a smile on his face. Even me as a young child he was so polite and interested in what I was doing. I can still see and hear him playing the piano and all of us singing for the holidays.
He will be missed by many, but he will never be forgotten.

Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand. I will miss his phone calls and letters. Love you Chuck. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Linda Fury Winter

I believe Chuck roomed at my parent's house at Bricelyn in the 50's early in his teaching career. I was very young but I remember him as a kind, fun person. God bless his memory. Our deepest sympathies to the family. Lori (Klingbeil) Schlomann

When we moved to the Cities in 1966 I was employed as a band director in St. Paul. Needing summer work I called Chet Groth who I knew from the past. Chet introduced me to Chuck who at that time was in charge of the Lessons in Home Program. It was the beginning of a most beneficial opportunity for me and I hope for both Chet and Chuck. I appreciated the chance to work in the program and it helped keep me and my family going in the early years. Rest in peace Chuck.
