Muddy Buddys Jeep Club member dies at 42!

William “Scott” Molton

William “Scott” Molton, 43, of Bellefontaine, died Saturday, Jan. 26, 2008, at Mary Rutan Hospital.

He was born in Bellefontaine on Aug. 17, 1964, a son of William E. and Marilyn Robinaugh Molton, who survive in Bellefontaine. On Oct. 10, 1992, he married the former Julie M. Grunninger, and she survives, along with a brother, Steve (Cynthia) Molton of Urbana; a sister, Patty (Dave) Rostorfer of Bellefontaine; a special niece, Marcy Sebring of Bellefontaine; special nephews, Ryan Sebring of Bellefontaine and Sam and Jacob Molton of Urbana; uncles Larry (Dianna) Robinaugh of Bellefontaine and Robert (Donna) Lynham of North Royalton; aunts Nancy Beaty of Arkansas, Nell Learch of Wanatah, Ind., and May Roberts of Morehead, Ky.; and his mother-in-law, Harriet Grunninger of Urbana.

He was preceded in death by maternal grandparents, Leroy and Martha Robinaugh, and paternal grandparents, Thomas and Hazel Molton.

For the past 13 years, he was dedicated to the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, where he worked in the maintenance department.

He was a 1982 graduate of Bellefontaine High School and the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center. In 1984, he graduated from the University of Northwestern Ohio. He was a member of the Bellefontaine Lions Club and served two terms as president, seven terms as secretary, and was also chairman of the eye glasses program and a recipient of the Melvin Jones Fellow Award.

He was also a member of the Muddy Buddys Jeep Wrangler Club of Dayton. He enjoyed spending time with his niece and nephews, camping, driving his Jeep, and making toys with his woodworking hobby.

Scott, being a good-hearted person, made sure many driveways were snowplowed for neighbors during the winter season. He will be greatly missed by family, friends and his black Labrador, Missy.

Pastor John Ware conducts a funeral at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Eichholtz Funeral Home, Bellefontaine, where calling is from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. Interment is in Bellefontaine Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Bellefontaine Lions Club Eye Glasses Fund. Express condolences at

You will get the same jeep you have now, only there you will have the time and money to build it and wheel it.

Sad to hear of the loss but know he is in a better place and is wheeling in the deep mud and big rocks.

EVERYBODY is pro-gun, some just don't know it. When an anti-gun person is in trouble, the first thing they do is call 911 and demand that they send somebody with a gun!

Trying to understand some people, is like trying to pick up a turd by the clean side.

It is tough when someone dies in the prime of their life. He was only 2 years older than me.
Turbocharge it!
Then I'm interested!
