Born on January 25, 1963 in Carroll, Iowa, Scott Walter was the son of Leander and Eileen (Riesberg) Halbur. He graduated from Manning High School with the class of 1981. On August 20, 1983, Scott was united in marriage with Darlys Klocke at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Dedham. After their wedding, Scott and Darlys farmed near Dedham until 1988, when they moved to the family farm south of Manning. Scott was a very active member of the community. He was a Eucharistic Minister and active parishioner at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. He was a proud 3rd degree Knight in the Knights of Columbus Council #12438. His countless volunteer hours and tireless efforts led to the Halbur family being name the 2014-2015 Iowa Knights of Columbus Family of the Year. He cherished time with his family; he enjoyed traveling and hiking; he was an expert gardener. Scott will be remembered most for his selfless service to others and his diligent efforts in the pro-life movement. Left to cherish Scott’s life are his wife: Darlys Halbur; his children: Melissa Yeats (Logan), Michelle Halbur (Collin Clark), Amanda Richardson (Patrick), Rebecca Halbur (Jess Anderson), Elizabeth Halbur, and Scott Christopher Halbur; his grandchildren: Valerie, Hannah, and Oliver Clark; Claire, Anna, and Benjamin Yeats; and Baby Richardson. Also surviving are Scott’s mother: Eileen Halbur, and his siblings: Sue DeGard (Dan), Ken Halbur (Pat), Terry Halbur (JoAnne), Kristy Hugeback (Kent), and Carla Hacker (Craig); as well as many nieces, nephews, and other extended family. Preceding Scott in death was his father, Leander Halbur.
