Scott Harrington

Scott S. Harrington, 61, of New Rockford, ND, died peacefully surrounded by his wife and children, on Sunday, December 13, 2020, at St. Alexius Medical Center in Bismarck, ND.

Scott was born on March 16, 1959, in Bismarck. The son of Beulah (Nerby) and Earl Harrington, Scott was the youngest of five children: George, Wayne, Linda, and Steven. He was raised and attended school in Robinson, ND.

After graduating from Robinson High School, Scott attended Bismarck Junior College Lineworkers School. He worked for Oliver-Mercer Electric Cooperative in Hazen, then Tri-County Electric (now known as Northern Plains Electric) on the Robinson crew where he took over for Earl, after his father’s retirement in 1986. He transferred to Carrington in 1994 for a dispatcher and controller position. In 2007, Scott became the Line Superintendent for McClean Electric Cooperative in Garrison, ND. He retired in 2012 after 30 years.

More than anything, Scott loved spending quality time with and helping his children – Taustin, Tayler, and Taysha – grow. Scott married Traci on February 12, 2013, in a spontaneous, yet unsurprising trip to Las Vegas. Their marriage beautifully blended two families, introducing Jess, Kortney, and Lauren into his life.

Scott loved the outdoors – hunting, fishing, trapping, and camping, and he cherished the time he spent both at home and in Canada. He loved motorcycle trips with Traci and their friends. Scott filled his “shed” with collector vehicles to fix and perfect in his free time, while proudly displaying his many hunting trophies. Scott was an avid sports player, his favorites being softball, bowling, and golf.  

Scott was loved by everyone who was lucky enough to meet him, and it was uncommon for him to go anywhere without stumbling upon a familiar face. In the rare times he did not see someone he knew, he quickly and easily made new friends. Scott’s infectious laugh and quick sense of humor carried him through life, and it never wavered, right through the end.

Scott is survived by his wife, Traci, and his children: Taustin (Julie) Harrington, Carrington, ND; Tayler Harrington, Palm Springs, CA; and Taysha (Tim) Johnson, Jamestown, ND; his bonus children:  Jess Roscoe, Bismarck, ND; Kortney Roscoe, Fargo, ND; and Lauren Roscoe, New Rockford, ND; his siblings Wayne (Monica) Harrington, Lincoln, ND; George Harrington, Surprise, AZ; Linda (Scotty) Weisenberger, Underwood, ND; and Steve (Joey) Harrington, Bismarck, ND; and his grandchildren, Jazmyn, Tiegen, and Ezekiel Harrington.

Scott was preceded in death by his parents, Beulah and Earl Harrington. 

Visitation will be Thursday, December 17, 2020 from 9:00AM-5:00PM at Evans Funeral Home, New Rockford.

His Private Funeral Service will be held Friday, December 18, 2020 at 11:00AM at First Lutheran Church, New Rockford, ND.

Burial will be at a later date at the Prairie Home Cemetery, New Rockford, ND.

  15. So sorry to hear about Scott. I grew up next door to him in Robinson. I was just talking about him the other day when I was telling my husband about my mom going to Bismarck to buy me a new bike. I was adamant that I didn’t want a black one because Scott had one. Never forget his easy laugh. My sympathies.

  26. To Scott’s Family. My heart is broken over the loss of my sweet and charming little cousin. His smile and infectious giggle always made my day. We spent tons of time together growing up. Our family weekends spent in Robinson were the bright spot of my life growing up. Scott was like a little brother and I loved him dearly. He would be waiting for us at our little house when we got to Robinson, so excited. We were all so glad to see him. His journey on earth was special because he touched so many people’s hearts. Scott, the memories of you will always bring a smile to my face. Until we meet again…..embrace our loved ones in heaven. Traci and children, I am so sorry….wish I could be there for hugs and stories. I am praying for you all. May our heavenly Savior grant you comfort, love and healing.

  39. I worked for many years with Scott- and so enjoyed his sense of humor, not to mention his practical jokes. Punching tiny holes on the front of your Diet Coke can while you weren’t looking, then trying to contain himself while he watched you continue to wipe your dampened chin over and over— Scott was full of laughter and life. He never ever complained despite the pain he endured from arthritis. I just have so many great memories working with him and send our deepest condolences to his family. Prayers for strength and healing…

  43. I was fortunate enough to meet and bear hunt with Scott numerous times over the last 7-8 years where Scott would guide for our outfitter, David. Scott was a fun and easy guy to get along with. Our group from Michigan would come enjoy the down time, friendship, and camaraderie with Scott and David more than we enjoyed the actual hunting part.

    On one very memorable trip our group had enough success that Scott was able to do some hunting on his own. He was successful and wow did we have blast helping him get his bear out of the woods as it got dark our last night in Canada.

    You all have our sympathy, Scott will be missed.

  44. Not even sure how to put into words how sad I was to hear of Scott’s passing. So many memories of him, always laughing and smiling, usually up to no good, but in a good way. He’s the only person I know that would sit in a tree stand all of hunting season, to video tape the deer but never shoot one. We traded a few practical joke gifts, so one Christmas when he told me to stop over, he had a present for me, I was a little nervous. Turned out to actually be from Beulah, a “Burden Bear” complete with a portion of a quilt from my great grandma Harrington. She made one for each of the kids and thought I should have one too. Easy to see where Scott got his kindness. Prayers of comfort to you all, he will be missed but will not be forgotten.

  46. Very sorry to hear the news of Scott’s passing. As kids and young adults we shared many laughs and doing crazy stuff kids do. Water skiing at Lake William with less than a full wardrobe is just one thing that comes to mind. Rest in peace old friend. Love you.
