CORNISH - Scott Nathan Howland, 67, passed away peacefully surrounded by his beloved family on Dec. 9, 2018 at his home. Scott was born in Portland, ME on Sept. 29, 1951, the son of Donald M. and Lillian M. (Wallace) Howland.

He also owned and operated used car dealerships. He was a motivated and driven individual with a desire to succeed in life.

He was a private pilot who loved to fly with his brother and father. Scott was an avid skier, like to snowmobile and also enjoyed going to the North Maine Woods with his family at Caribou Lake.
